Time to do away with ties

When the NFL considers rule changes this offseason, the first one it should look at is the abolishment of ties.

Philadelphia and Cincinnati played to the NFL’s first tie since Atlanta and Pittsburgh in 2002.

Two teams spent all week prepping, practicing, then playing 75 minutes on Sunday for what? Not to feel victorious, not to feel defeated, but to feel nothing.

Maybe another overtime should not be played. But maybe the NFL could adapt the system that colleges use in overtime, which generates excitement, drama and, most importantly, a winner.
