(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.

Another quiet day is on tap for Tuesday. Expect a mix of sun and clouds into the afternoon. Highs will be near average in the upper 50s. We'll see more sunshine into Wednesday. Temperatures during this time will be warming up to near 70 degrees.
