Chiefs officially propose amends to NFL overtime rules

After a frustrating end to the AFC Championship last season, the Kansas City Chiefs have submitted a proposal to the National Football League to change overtime rules. It would have been a lot of fun, and I think a lot of people - if they weren't already tuned in for a great game - they certainly wouldn't have wanted to miss that overtime.

Under the proposed amendment to Rule 16, each team would possess the ball at least once in overtime, even if the first team scores a touchdown.

The proposed changes will be discussed at the NFL's annual league meeting later this month.

The Chiefs fell to the Patriots in overtime of the AFC title game when they didn't get a chance to touch the ball since New England scored a touchdown on its first possession.

And the coin toss would be eliminated from overtime. The rule also applies if a team is trailing by any deficit with five minutes or less remaining in the fourth quarter. As the overtime rules now stand, a game ends if a touchdown is scored on the opening overtime possession.

-From the Chiefs: Have all possible personal fouls, regardless of whether they were called on the field, subject to coaches' challenge.

Under the Redskins proposal, all plays that occur during a game could potentially be subjected to a coaches' challenge or review by the officiating department in the instant replay system. Philadelphia would like to see scoring plays and turnovers negated by a foul to be subject to automatic instant replay review. The team wants coaches to be able to challenge personal foul calls. Under the Broncos' proposal, all fourth down or goal line plays that are spotted short of the line to gain would be subject to automatic review.

NFL owners will consider the rule changes when league meetings open in Phoenix on March 24.

-From the Broncos: Have all extra-point or two-point conversion tries automatically reviewed via replay. The rule is then sent to the competition committee in mid-March.
