    Turns out they didn’t know the rules.


    That article suggests that the players didn't know, but Shanahan knew
    and wanted the ball after they'd hopefully traded TDs or FGs and it
    really became sudden death.

    KC having a kicker with a massive and accurate leg certainly had
    something to do with that. You don't want to end up on the other
    side of that equation.
