The recommended procedure is the "10-Yard Overtime." Each team, in turn, starts a series 1st-and-goal on the 10-yard line. Penalties for fouls could move the ball from the 10-yard line. If the defensive team gains possession of the ball, the series is ended. (3-1-1-Note)
Each team, in turn, starts a series 1st-and-10 on the 25-yard line. The ball remains alive if the defense gains possession, and the defense can score in overtime the same way it could score during regulation play. (3-1-3)
