New OT (Playoffs Only) Rules

As most of us know starting this weekend there will be new overtime rules for the postseason. I will give the Packers-Eagles game as an refresher of the rules:
The Packers win the toss recieve and kick a field goal the game is NOT over unless the Packers stop the Eagles. the Packers score a touchdown, the game is over. The Packers punt or turn the ball over (such as fumbling the kickoff) Eagles kick a field goal the game is over. If both teams kick a field goal or fail to score the game becomes sudden death. A safety wins the game. An Onside kick recovered by the kicking team does mean the game is over if the team kicks a FG.

Hope this clarifies the rule.
