The way you make more money in sudden death rather than full 15 minute quarter was said to highlight that not the players make more or the team but
the nfl in general and the sponsors and especially the networks.
The reason i see is because they have a schedule to keep and is planned very detailed to certain markets and they lose much sponsor money when they
deviate from the plan. However in playoffs it is a different story cause limited amount of games.

Also full 10-15 minute quarters should be added in place of sudden death during playoffs.
