Only four owners voted against adopting the new “modifed sudden death” format to overtime in the playoffs.
Two have already said publicly they will vote yes to adopt the rule in the regular season.
In separate interviews, Bengals owner Mike Brown and Vikings owner Zygi Wilf both said they believe consistency is important in the rules, and want the new overtime rule extended into the regular season.
Competition committee co-chairman Rich McKay expressed doubt Tuesday the rule would be implemented for this regular season, but admitted it will be discussed in May.
If two of the four “no” votes have already turned to yes, it looks quite possible to us.
