Whereas in the NFL if the player was not touched by the other team prior to his knee hitting the ground he would be able to stand up and continue the play.
Overtime games are decided by a field goal shootout, and after a touchdown a team is granted one point for kicking and two points for running or passing the ball into the end zone.
