Patriots Support the Modified Playoff Overtime Rule Change

According to ESPNBoston's Mike Reiss, Robert Kraft says that the Patriots voted in support of the overtime rule change last night. The change in rules would require 66.6% of the teams to vote in support of, in order for the rule to pass and be accepted.

The rule, essentially, says that playoff overtime can't end on a opening drive field goal- we go more in-depth into the change here.

I'm happy that Kraft voted in support. I don't think any single game elimination game should end without the opposing team having a chance to retaliate after a field goal.
