The Days of having a locked in winner with a +7 team when a game goes to OT is over...
The regular season rules will now be the same as the recently adopted rules for Playoff OT games... like the one that saw Tebow win it with a TD pass on the 1st play (that play would have been a winner with the old rule as well).
In the regular season OT games now, teams have the chance to both get a possession unless one of the factors that ends the game instantly is met.
I don't feel like explaining it all here... but if someone has a link to the NFL rule please feel free to post it.
