Indien het spel eindigt op een gelijkspel na de reglementaire speeltijd wordt er verder gespeeld volgens de regels van de ‘sudden death’.

If the game is tied at the end of the regulation 60 minutes, it will continue in sudden-death overtime. The team scoring first (by safety, field goal, or touchdown) will win.

At the end of regulation, the referee immediately will toss a coin at the center of the field, in accordance with rules pertaining to the usual pregame toss.
