NFL Referee Ed Hochuli’s 57-second explanation of the new NFL overtime rules … in verse.
With the score tied at the end of regulation we will go into overtime
There are special overtime rules in the playoffs
Both teams get an opportunity to possess the football with one exception
That one exception is a touchdown always wins the game
So if a team that gets the opening kickoff scores a touchdown on their first possession the game is over at that point
If the team that first gets the ball kicks a field goal the other team will have an opportunity to possess the football
And then we are essentially in sudden death
If the first team that gets the football does not score we will go into sudden death
The second team will then have the opportunity to possess the ball and the first team to score even if it’s just by three points will win
Timing rules are as if we were starting a new game
We will use regular timing rules
And replay all replay will be conducted from the booth
The coaches do not have challenges
New York It’s your call What’s your call?

NFL Referee Ed Hochuli’s 57-second explanation of the new NFL overtime rules … in verse.

With the score tied
at the end of regulation
we will go into overtime

There are special
overtime
rules
in the playoffs

Both teams get an opportunity
to possess the football
with one exception

That one exception
is a touchdown
always wins the game

So if a team
that
gets
the opening kickoff
scores
a
touchdown
on their first possession
the game is over
at that point

If the team
that first gets the ball
kicks a field goal
the other team
will have an
opportunity
to possess the football

And then
we are
essentially
in
sudden
death

If the first team
that
gets the football
does not
score
we will go into
sudden
death

The second team
will then
have the
opportunity
to possess the ball
and
the first team to score
even if it’s
just
by
three points
will win

Timing rules
are as if
we were starting
a
new
game

We will use
regular timing rules

And replay
all replay
will be
conducted from the booth

The coaches
do not
have challenges

New York
It’s your call
What’s your call?
