Major rule changes

  • Plastic helmets are prohibited. This rule was enacted because critics argued that they were being used more as a weapon than protection.
  • A flexible artificial tee is permitted at the kickoff.
  • When the intended passer is tackled behind the line of scrimmage, the game clock will stop temporarily until any receivers who have gone down field have had a reasonable time to return.
  • When the offense is called for delay of game, the defense may decline the 5-yard distance penalty.
  • If a foul occurs behind the line during a backwards pass or fumble, the penalty is enforced from the spot of the pass or fumble.
  • It is illegal to bat or punch the ball while it is in a player's possession.
  • All officials are equipped with whistles, not horns.
