Angry football fans have called for a change to the NFL overtime rules after the dramatic Chiefs touchdown vs Bills.
The game is being hailed as game of the year by football fans, but Bills fans were left heartbroken because of the league’s overtime rules.
MAHOMES TO KELCE.

Due to the overtimes rules that allow the receiving team to win the game if they score a TD, the Bills offense weren’t able to touch the ball.
And fans aren’t happy at all. Thousands have called for the NFL to reinvestigate their rules.
Josh Allen didn't get to touch the ball in overtime…. just like Patrick Mahomes didn't get to touch the ball in overtime in 2019.

The overtime rule for playoff games must change. If this one doesn’t spark a more fair approach nothing ever will.

A plea to change the OT rules immediately so that both teams touch the ball. Like literally this second.

The NFL has the worst overtime rule in all of sports. How do you allow a game that good to end without the other team even getting a chance to respond?

Imagine not getting to touch the ball in OT. I’m not talking just this game. The @NFL overtime rules are fucking stupid.
