As for safeties in overtime, this should not end the game either in my opinion. If the defense scores a safety, they get 2 points. Or if you want to look at it from an offensive angle, the offense scored -2 points. In the unlikely event of a safety on the opening drive of overtime - it has only ever happened twice I believe - the scoring team's offense should still get the ball and be tasked with doing better than scoring -2 points. As it is still possible to score -6 points via a defensive touchdown.

gotta say you lost me on this one, as 0 is also better than -2 so they could just kneel it out?

It's so tiresome. Pretty much every team does it.

Now, I wonder if Jason Kelce is getting ready to do another speech this February on the steps in Philadelphia about how everyone believed in them this time but they let everyone down? No? Oh.

indeed, some teams have a right to it but the Pats just take the pee with it, its down to there inability to take any negative comment at all.

people are bored of them because they think they will win not because they think they are garbage.
