There figure to be a number of proposals, from the competition committee and even individual franchises, presented at the annual league meetings in Phoenix next month. None of the proposals are likely to mirror the overtime system currently used by colleges. Here is a look at a few possibilities:
There will almost certainly be a proposal that calls for each team to get at least one possession. If the first team scored a field goal or touchdown, the opponent would get a chance to match or exceed that. If neither scored after two possessions each, the overtime would move to sudden death.
A proposal being championed by the league office would require a team to score six points to win. That would eliminate games being determined by one field goal.
Pittsburgh owner Dan Rooney is considering a proposal that would give both teams at least one possession. If the team that gained the ball first scored a touchdown, its opponent would have to also score a touchdown, but go for a two-point conversion, on the ensuing series.
