Postseason OT adopted for regular season
Postseason OT adopted for regular season; replay official to review turnovers
By The Associated Press

PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) ' NFL owners have passed the playoff overtime rule for the regular season.

All games that go to overtime now can't end on a field goal on the first possession. The opposing team must get one series, and if it also kicks a field goal, the extra period continues.

Owners also have given the replay official permission to review turnovers just as he reviews all scoring plays.



Other rules changes: a team will lose a down for illegally kicking a loose ball; too many men on the field becomes a dead ball foul; and a player receiving a crackback block is now considered a defenseless player and will result in a 15-yard penalty.
