#1 Couple rule changes in the NFL this year.08-30-2008, 04:32 PM
No more 5-yard penalty for incidental face masks. The 15-yard flagrant penalty stays, of course.
Elimination of the force-out rule. No more guessing on whether a receiver would have landed in bounds were he not "forced out" by a defenseman. The receiver must land in bounds with both feet whether he was forced out or not.
I like both of them. And anything to reduce the number of flags the zebras throw is OK with me.
