The term is not exclusive to the NFL, but refers to a specific method of resolving a sporting event that ends with a tie. In that method, the teams begin an extra period of play (in the NFL called "overtime"). Under normal game rules, the team which first scores in overtime wins the game immediately. The team that loses suffers a "sudden death". There can also be sudden death hockey or soccer games. This is different from, where both teams have an opportunity to bat in their half of the inning before a winner is declared.
In the NHL, there is one (1) five (5) minute 'sudden death' overtime period during the regular season, followed by a shoot-out if necessary. There is an unlimited amount of twenty (20) minute 'sudden death' periods during the playoffs.
During the regular season, the game is over. It is recorded as a tie. During the post-season (playoffs), the game will continue in sudden-death overtime. The first team to score wins.

The NFL has not abandoned the tie game. According to the rules (found at the NFL's web site in their rules digest) a tie game occurs during preseason and regular season games if neither team scores after a 15 minute sudden death quarter.

Is it still sudden death or do they play a complete quarter.Overtime is always sudden death in the NFL. The only difference in the postseason is that successive quarters are played until someone scores.
In the NFL, If a team wins the coin toss and then kicks a field goal, the other team gets the ball. If the game becomes tied again after that next series, play will continue under the current sudden-death rules. Should the team winning the toss immediately score a touchdown, then the game is over.
