The new overtime rules instituted for postseason football last year will now be applied to the regular season as well.
The NFL owners approved the expansion of the overtime rules, which allow each team to possess the ball once unless a touchdown is scored on the initial possession in overtime, to the regular season. Last year it applied only to postseason games.
NFL head coaches complained that the overtime differences between the regular season and postseason presented added work and changed strategy for overtime.
