NEW YORK - NFL rule makers will decide this spring whether to change the NFL's sudden-death overtime format, two members of the league's competition committee said. The panel, which makes recommendations on rules to owners, plans to review the league's method of breaking ties, said Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Rich McKay, who are on the eight-member committee. The league has used sudden death, where the first team to score in a 15-minute overtime period wins, during the regular season since 1974.

The Ravens are struggling through an eight-game losing streak, but it could be worse - a lot worse. How? Two words. Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are probably the worst-positioned franchise in the NFL, maybe in all of major pro sports. Think about it. Michael Vick's situation leaves an enormous talent vacuum. The coach they started the season with just ran out on them. The owner, Arthur Blank, has indicated he has lost confidence in the guy who was running the franchise, Rich McKay. Bill Parcells, the guy who was going to plot their football future, spurned them.

NEW ORLEANS - Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis might become the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' head coach, but it appears he may have to wait for that announcement. According to the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times, Lewis will be named Buccaneers coach as early as this week if general manager Rich McKay is given the authority to make his selection. But Tampa Bay vice presidents Joel and Bryan Glazer disagree with McKay's choice to hire Lewis because they fear the team will take a step backward, and they want the club to continue to pursue Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden.

The NFL's Thursday night season opener will match the Super Bowl-champion New York Giants and the Washington Redskins, with the game possibly starting 1 1/2 hours earlier to avoid clashing with the Republican National Convention. The game is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Sept. 4 - the concluding night of the Republican convention - and will be televised by NBC. League spokesman Greg Aiello said yesterday that the NFL is talking with the network about changing the game's starting time to 7 p.m. The Redskins' participation was confirmed to the Associated Press by a person familiar with the NFL schedule who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the league has not announced it. Seahawks -- Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Trufant and Seattle have agreed to a six-year, $50.2 million contract that runs through 2013.

PHOENIX -- The NFL made instant replay a permanent rule yesterday at the league's owners meetings. There were two years remaining on the latest extension to use instant replay, but the owners voted 30-2 to make it a permanent fixture. The Arizona Cardinals and the Cincinnati Bengals were the only teams who voted against it. "We couldn't go backward," Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said. "We have always been in favor of instant replay as a team and continue to do so. Instant replay solves more problems than it creates."

ORLANDO, Fla. - The debate surrounding the "tuck rule" has been put away for a couple of months. Since there was no consensus on how to change the rule, the league tabled all talks until the owners' meetings in May to allow all 32 teams a chance to study tapes involving balls being knocked loose from quarterbacks. The rule's current interpretation is that when a quarterback's throwing arm moves forward in a passing motion, it's considered a pass attempt even if he loses possession of the ball as he's trying to tuck it back toward his body.

PALM BEACH, Fla. - As the NFL owners meetings wrapped up yesterday, the league stressed two points: It wants celebrations down and passing yards up. By a 31-1 vote (Oakland dissented, as usual), owners approved a measure that will crack down on excessive celebrating, allowing the issuing of 15-yard penalties for planned activities by two or more teammates and ejecting players who use such props as mobile phones and markers. The NFL also announced it will direct officials to focus on illegal contact - a change resulting from passing yards dropping to an 11-year low (200.
