When the NFL Competition Committee gathers for next week's Annual League Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, shortening the game's "fifth quarter" will go under the microscope, Judy Battista of NFL Network reports.

Battista tweeted Monday that the committee will propose reducing both preseason and regular-season overtime periods from 15 minutes to 10 minutes. Postseason games would keep the traditional 15-minute time limit.

Battista reported the committee believes there is a "real disadvantage" for a team playing an entire 15-minute overtime period before having to turn around and play a Thursday night game the following week.
