I never thought I’d see the day.

According to ESPN, NFL on owners approved a rule proposal to change the overtime rules in the playoffs, by allowing both teams to have a possession.

However, the current overtime rules will stay the same for the regular season, which are the team who gets the ball first can win on the first possession if they score.

We all were calling for this rule to be changed, especially after that incredible AFC Divisional game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills, with quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen putting on arguably the two best quarterback performances in NFL history.

However, the Chiefs won the coin toss in overtime and scored a touchdown on the first possession to win the game 42-36, and Josh Allen never had a shot.

Thank God we’ll never have to watch a great game have such a shitty ending like that again.
