Actually I'm pretty sure the circumstances of that game would be exactly the same with the new rules. I think that if the first team with possession scores a TD they win. The other team only gets the ball in the case of a FG being kicked by the first team.

So we leave a system in place that grants the team winning a chance event a statistically huge advantage, purely on the outside chance that somewhere between 0.5% and 2% of games will have thrilling finishes? That logic completely eludes me. It's the functional equivalent of deciding overtime by lottery.

My opinion of the sudden-death system is not affected by who is playing or by who wins. When I am watching two teams I care nothing about, I am just as dissatisfied when one of the teams drives down the field for a field goal to end the game as I am disappointed when the Packers lose in similar fashion. Similarly, when the Packers kick a field goal win in overtime, I am rarely thrilled at the finish -- I find planned field goals boring and anticlimactic. I'm more just relieved they managed to pull it off and didn't get screwed by some quirk in the game. I want to feel like the team who won actually outplayed their opponent, not that they happened to profit from a lucky flip of the coin.

I don't get much, if any, pleasure out of watching overtime in the NFL. Mostly I am just a nervous wreck, wincing at every aggressive play that might go wrong, and totally wrung out (and more often than not, feeling let down) when it ends.
