Re: NFL to have same regular season OT rules as playoffs
I think they're making it overly complicated. It should be:
- first team to 6 points wins
- overtime period is 15 minutes
- finish tied, game is tied
- finish with one team leading, that team wins
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
