Tie Question...

Postby aaawall91 » Sun Dec 17, 2006 10:06 pm

In what situation is there a tie in the NFL?
I can't recall one, is the game considered a tie after each team has had at least 1 possesion in overtime? Or what?

Because I keep hearing all the sports shows talknig about how if a team ties or loses the other team will clinch the division and what not.

if the two teams are tied after the 15 minute OT, then the game ends in a tie.

Also, whoever scores first wins. The other team doesn't get a chance to respond unless they make a defensive stop.

Right, I knew the rule for how overtime operates, I just forgot there was a time limit on it for the NFL I guess.

If I remember correctly the last tie game was Atlanta at Pittsburg in 2002. Tied at 34.

Yep, and Plax was about a foot short of scoring at the very end !+)

i hate this system, it needs to be changed to college. A coin toss often determines who wins the game, by that point the offense has the upperhand over a tired D.

That was a great game (except for the tie part) I remember the MaddoX Hail Mary at the end and Burress comes down and they get him to the ground about a foot short as time expires. Maddox had 473 yards passing that day.. ;-D

Personally I think both sides need at least one posession in OT. I hate the coin flip and then the other team gets into FG range and game over. Weak! Both sides need a chance with the ball at least one possession..

I've mentioned it before, but I think the NFL would be better off going to an Arena-like system where each team gets at least one possesion. Furthermore, I'd like to see each team get equal possesions (but keep the gameplay the way it is, i.e. have kickoffs, punts, etc. still...)
