A few recent changes in the National Football League rules could be the deciding factor in a win and a loss. The NFL owners got together and compiled different rules to be implemented and/or modified. The first rule to be modified was the playoff overtime rule. Now, if a team scores a field goal in a playoff game in overtime on their first possession, the opposing team has a chance to have the football and try to score. But, if the first team to receive the ball scores a touchdown on their first possession, then the game is over. This rule modification I feel is a good thing because most of overtime is very dependent on luck. Prior to the rule change, if you received the ball first in overtime you had a much greater chance in winning because all you had to do was score any way possible. Another rule change is that on every turnover the official booth reviews the play in order to save coaches from having to waste a challenge. This seems to make the challenge flag useless, as prior to this rule the challenge flag was dependent on coach to player communication and trust, and having the chance of possibly losing your timeout and challenge. Overall, some rule changes have been good, and some have been bad, as with any changes that will most likely be the case; some will approve and some will not.
