(NFL)— The Kansas City Chiefs have submitted a proposal to change the current NFL overtime format.

The Chiefs propose that both teams be guaranteed at least one possession in overtime—regardless if a touchdown is scored on the first possession. 

Kansas City's proposed rule changes would eliminate overtime in the preseason and eliminate the overtime coin toss. 

The Chiefs propose that whichever team won the pregame coin toss would then choose whether to start overtime with the ball or on defense.

Sunday will start to warm back up into the middle 50s and we should see more sunshine across the area. Much colder air is in the forecast for next week with highs only in the upper 20's and lower 30's.
