They went and did it for the playoffs.
Still a goofy idea.
It makes no sense to make one rule for the postseason and another for the regular season. You are essentially saying our OT rules are flawed so we need to improve them for the postseason but are good enough for the regular season which decides who goes to the postseason. To me you either leave the rule alone or change it for both the regular and postseason. Half changing the rule makes no sense.
So what if the team #1 has the ball, throws an interception, team #2 runs it back 20-30 yards, and fumbles the ball back. Then team #1 kicks a FG.
Did team #2 "possess" the ball? Do they get another chance?
