Pacheco is short of the line on 3rd down.

It’s 4th and 1… and the 49ers fans are on their feet making some serious noise. One play here could end it.

Rule changes

For those of you unfamiliar, there have been some rule changes by the NFL for overtime at the Super Bowl this year.

For this year’s Super Bowl, the overtime rules are being adjusted to allow both teams a chance to score before the game ends.

If the score remains tied after both teams have gotten a chance, the game will go to sudden death and the next score wins.

However, if the team kicking off scores a safety on the opening drive, the kicking team is named the winner.

The previous rules worked on a sudden death system, where if the opening team scored a touchdown on the first drive, the game would be over.

However, if they only scored a field goal the other team would be allowed a chance to score.
