10 minutes unless one team scores a touchdown or both teams possess the ball with one team scoring a field goal or safety.

The current NFL rules give both teams the opportunity to possess the ball at least once in overtime, unless the team that receives the overtime kickoff scores a touchdown on its first possession. If the score is still tied at the end of the one 10 minute overtime, the game will be recorded as a tie.
