NEW YORK (AP) - If it seems as though nearly every NFL game this season has come down to the final seconds, that's not your imagination.
Through nine weeks, there have been 31 matchups with the winning score made in the last two minutes of regulation or overtime - nearly one quarter of all games. That's the most since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970.
In each of the last four seasons, no more than 24 games had been decided that late through Week 9.
And many of these teams have been celebrating their wins very, very late this year. Of the 31 such games, 21 had the decisive points scored in OT or the final 10 seconds of regulation.
