Josh Allen Makes Fun of NFL Overtime Rules On National TV [WATCH]
The NFL is preparing to have their biggest game of the calendar year this Sunday, when the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams square off in Super Bowl 56. The game marks the latest end to an NFL postseason, as the league implemented 17 games in 2021.
Buffalo Bills fans are still feeling the sting of what happened just under three weeks ago, when the Bills lost s heartbreaker in the AFC Divisional round to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Bills lost 42-36 in overtime, despite quarterback Josh Allen's stellar performance of 4 touchdown passes, zero turnovers, and nearly 400 total yards of offense; with two seemingly, game-winning drives in the 4th quarter.
The Chiefs famously won the coin toss in overtime and because of the NFL overtime rules, the scored a touchdown on their first possession, and the game ended. Allen and the Bills offense did not get an opportunity to get the ball in overtime.
The NFL overtime rule states that if the team who gains possession of the ball first, scores a touchdown on their first possession, the game is over. If they kick a field goal, punt, or turn the ball over.
There has been a lot of debate recently over the NFL overtime rules, and it was brought up again on Thursday night at the 2022 NFL Honors, by Josh Allen himself.
Keegan-Michael Key hosted the NFL Honors, and he had funny moments in between the show announcing award winners. At one point, Key joked that they just wish the show could go "on and on and on and on."
Then, he turned to Allen and said "don't you agree, Josh Allen?"
Josh's response was priceless.
"Or...you just end it in a way that makes sense, is fair, and gives everyone an equal opportunity win," said Allen.
The video went viral last night and all of Buffalo is thrilled Josh got to say that.
By the way, that man (Allen) should be on TV way more often. Let's see him in some more national commercials.
