NFL Rule Changes
The biggest rule change of the 2014 NFL season won’t require a single edit in the rule book. That’s because, technically, it’s not a change. The league has simply made aggressive play in the defensive backfield a “point of emphasis” Initiating contact five yards beyond the line of scrimmage and illegal hands to the face were always penalties, but now the NFL will be monitoring them more closely.
The mystery of the accuracy of some field goals will no longer exist in the NFL, thanks in large part to Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.
Brace yourselves: another possible change to the game we love so much could be coming to the NFL.
