Major rule changes

  • After a foul that occurs inside the last two minutes of the first half and inside the last five minutes of the second half, the game clock will start at the snap, instead of when the ball is spotted and the Referee signals it is ready to be played.
  • New rules are enacted, including loss of time outs or five-yard penalties, to handle the problems of crowd noise when it becomes too loud that it prevents the offensive team from hearing its signals.
  • If a reciever and a defender eventually establish joint control of a pass, the ball will be awarded to whoever was the first one who established control the ball first.
