Looking forward to the return of the Buffalo Bills, Josh Allen to join the debate around this season’s NFL overtime rules. This debate is certainly not news to anyone at this point due to its ‘unfair’ nature. Most fans like college football’s system that allows both teams to have a shot at scoring, and after the Bills and Chiefs started in the division, everyone wanted to see some change.
The game is a critically acclaimed horror movie with messy situations that can’t even be scripted. No fouls could be stopped with the final score 42-36 for the Captain. The last minute alone is incredible as Allen and Bills lead with 13 seconds left and look set to host the AFC championship game just to have Patrick Mahomes and the Captain’s error somehow managed to get into goal range on the field to establish an end game score.
This is where the rules need to be changed. Currently, according to NFL Overtime Rules, a coin toss occurs and the winner gets to choose whether they receive the ball or not. Of course, they always get because if you score a touchdown you win. The other team has no chance. And that’s exactly what the chiefs did.
With all the momentum in the world, Mahomes led his attack down the pitch to score the game-defining goal and, of course, he did. The Bills have the NFL’s #1 ranked defense but they won’t stop them, they haven’t made all the games. In the end, Bills and Allen lost because they didn’t win the coin toss. It doesn’t matter if they don’t win that pitch, they don’t come off the field to score and the result is a really heartbreaking loss.
Josh Allen is totally broken after not even having a chance
If the NFL followed college football’s overtime system, Allen will have a chance to take down his offense and try out the Chiefs. Instead, he had to sit there and watch Mahomes command his Chiefs to victory all for a penny. As a result, a depressed Allen sat on the sidelines realizing his season had ended in the most heartbreaking way possible.
Allen threw 329 yards and 4 touchdowns and played completely to beat the team that knocked him out of last season. There’s no part of him that deserves to go through that. However, protecting the Bills is a different story. They are the best defense in the NFL. THE BEST. And they allowed the captains to go into goal within 9 seconds. Of course, there is a heartbreaking point of how overtime is extended but they shouldn’t even allow captains to end the game.
While we will all remember this game as the one that lost on the toss of a coin, it goes without saying that the situation requiring extra hours to finish the game shouldn’t even have happened in the first place.
