This may be one of those 'be careful what you wish for' but I'd like to see the new overtime playoff rules come into play this season (where a TD is needed to win on the opening possession). Of course, I hope this doesn't come into play during the Patriots game, because I'd be hoping for a comfortable win. IF the Patriots did have to go to OT, I can't help but think that this rule would be perfect for them. With the Pats offense being THAT good and the defense being THAT bad, under the old rules the OT would clearly be decided by the coin flip. The new rules provide hope in that we would have hope that the defense could hold the opponent to a field goal. I would like to see this new format in action to watch each coach's strategy. If you win the coin toss, do you elect to receive the ball? This was previously a no-brainer to receive but has an added twist with the new rules.
