NFL Referee Ed Hochuli’s 57-second explanation of the new NFL overtime rules … in verse.

With the score tied
at the end of regulation
we will go into overtime

There are special
overtime
rules
in the playoffs

Both teams get an opportunity
to possess the football
with one exception

That one exception
is a touchdown
always wins the game

So if a team
that
gets
the opening kickoff
scores
a
touchdown
on their first possession
the game is over
at that point

If the team
that first gets the ball
kicks a field goal
the other team
will have an
opportunity
to possess the football

And then
we are
essentially
in
sudden
death

If the first team
that
gets the football
does not
score
we will go into
sudden
death

The second team
will then
have the
opportunity
to possess the ball
and
the first team to score
even if it’s
just
by
three points
will win

Timing rules
are as if
we were starting
a
new
game

We will use
regular timing rules

And replay
all replay
will be
conducted from the booth

The coaches
do not
have challenges

New York
It’s your call
What’s your call?

I just heard that Hank Williams and his “Are You Ready For Some Football?” got the axe over at Monday Night Football.

Finally. What I’ve been waiting for my whole life - here me out:

We switch to the “Saturday Night’s Main Event” theme music from the 80s, but instead call it Monday Night’s Main Event with referee Ed Hochuli replacing Hulk Hogan and tearing his ref’s uniform at the start of every game while referring to the visiting team’s captain as “brother” during the coin toss.
