in the NFL Believe that each team should be a receiver. Once the receiver has scored, or failed to, a new kick off is required. Continue until a score is accomplished. If both score, repeat the process.
I'd simplify it even more. Put 15:00 on the clock and play a full quarter under normal rules (except that all replay reviews would come from the booth instead of coaches having limited challenges). Football is not like basketball where players foul out, or like baseball where once a player is removed from the game, he can't come back in. Extra play in those sports can start to look ugly, with shortstops pitching in the 19th inning. Not so with football. There is no reason why OT in football has to be subjected to gimmicks. Just play the game like normal.
And what happens if it is a tie at the end of the 5th quarter? The players will be very tired and there still is a tie.
give them 1/2 of a trophy
