ironically the vikings are 1 of the 4 teams who voted against it.

i love this rule change. it guarantees our best player who arguably owns one of the most clutch drives in nfl history gets his hands on the ball.

the ravens and bengals obviously saw the importance of not guaranteeing one of the most clutch players in the game, a possession.

i think its funny half the "no" votes came from half of our division. being that we play them 4 times, i hope the rule is extended into the regular season.
