Q: Do you think the NFL should change the overtime format? Sometimes I just know whatever team wins the coin flip will win the game on the first drive, and in those situations, to have the game determined by a coin-flip just isn't right.

KENNY: I think teams should receive 100 points for a touchdown in overtime. This would create lopsided scores and induce coaches to try to win on regulation so as to avoid being involved in a blowout loss.
