Vote: NFL Overtime

Goodell Roger Goodell and the NFL's owners are discussing OT rule changes.

In the past 15 years, winning overtime games in the NFL depended heavily on the toss of a coin; almost 60 percent of teams that got the ball first ended up victorious. It's not entirely surprising; when all you have to do to win the game is kick a field goal, your degree of difficulty is reduced significantly.

Now, the NFL's ownership is considering making a change to the NFL's overtime rules in the playoffs. A touchdown would end the game, but a field goal would give the other team a chance to strike back. Is this a good idea?
