In overtime in pro football are there two overtimes or does it just end after one as a tie?

Depends on the time of year in which the game is played... regular season games have one overtime period (sudden death, first to score wins) and if at the end of the period (full 15 minutes, each team gets 2 timeouts) the score is still tied, it's over. Tie ball game. Playoff games on the other hand cannot end in ties... they'll continue playing indefinately until someone finally scores. (but the odds of 2 playoff caliber teams not being able to kick a field goal in a 15 minute period to seal a win in OT prevent us from seeing a double overtime game!) This answer is absolutely right. I'd just add that in postseason, overtime is played just like a brand new game. Therefore, each team gets a full 3 timeouts instead of 2, and there would even be a halftime period if the game was tied after the end of 2 overtimes. No game has ever gone beyond a second overtime, though.

Can you end an NHL game in a tie?

Is there only overtime in American football if it is a draw?

Yes. In regular season games, teams will play up to 15 minutes of overtime in order to settle a tie with the first team to score being declared the winner. If neither team scores in the 15 minute overtime period, the game is declared a tie. There is nothing used to break ties like the shootout you might see in ice hockey or penalty kicks in association football. In a playoff game, teams will play as many minutes of overtime as it takes until one team scores and is declared the winner.
