Postseason OT adopted for regular season

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.
