NFL Should Adopt College Football Overtime Rules

The NFL has made adjustments to their overtime rules this week, shortening the length of the period from 15 minutes down to 10 minutes. Why did they do this? Because the shorter OT period will lead to less overall run-time for the game, create urgency to score in the extra session, and lessen the chance of injuries to exhausted players.

Clay Travis believes the NFL should simply adopt the overtime rules of its little brother, college football, to create a truly exciting and enticing finish to a tight game. Listen below to hear why.
