NFL owners are holding their spring meetings this week in our sunshine state and will consider a proposed change to the league’s overtime rules.

The proposal, submitted by the Chiefs after their AFC title game loss to the Patriots, would eliminate the overtime coin toss and guarantee each team at least one overtime possession.

If adopted, it would be the second rule change to come out of last season’s Conference championships, after the league voted in March to allow video review of pass interference calls following the Rams NFC title game win over the Saints.

Do you agree with changing the OT rules? Are there any possible downsides to the plan?
