I hope there is some talk about it.
You have the NFLs MVP qb, and the #1 offense in the NFL for the season, and we didn't even get to see them in OT. Mainly because of a coin flip.
Something just doesn't seem right about that.
The NFL has changed the rules titling towards offense over the years, and defenses get worn down after 60 minutes. This puts greater emphasis in the coin flip.
The game is such that defenses have a tendency to wear out, 11 guys always chasing the ball every play, every down, whereas the offensive players don't have to chase once the ball carrier clears their area.
If they are going to keep pushing the rules toward the offense, they need to offset OT to allow both teams a chance at an offensive possession.
Most sports have this, NFL is lame not to have it.
They could have made the game even better if the NFLs MVP had a chance in OT to make his name.
Last year you have one of the GOAT, who just completed one of the most insane series with 2 unbelievable passes to tie a game in history, not even given a chance. I'd say the sport robbed itself of 2 amazing entertainment opportunities for an even more exciting ending to both games.
