6. I think the game is unrecognizable like kicking extra points further away

They changed the overtime rules after a Saints Vikings playoff game. Now you have a chance to tie with a field goal or win with a touchdown. All that wouldn't have been necessary if they moved the kickoff forward (they moved it back years ago to increase scoring) well they did do for player safety that plus they moved touchback up to the 25. If they kept it at the 20 a touchback in overtime would mean a 50/50% for both teams to score.

Because of tie game where no one scored on Sunday Night Football they shortened overtime to 10 minutes (completely unnecessary for a sudden death quarter) so now there's going to be more 3-3 ties in overtime such as Arizona & Detroit where clock ran out on both teams.

I would keep the kickoff where it is at now, put touchbacks at the 20 and go back to traditional overtime rules.
