Major rule changes

A package of changes were adopted to increase offensive production and scoring:

  • The two-point conversion after touchdowns is adopted.
  • The spot of the kickoff is moved from the 35-yard line to the 30-yard line.
  • The "Neutral zone infraction" foul is adopted. A play is automatically dead before the snap when a defensive player enters the neutral zone and causes an offensive player to react.
  • After a field goal is missed beyond the 20-yard line, the defensive team takes possession of the ball at the spot of the kick instead of the previous line of scrimmage.
  • During field goal attempts and extra point tries, players on the receiving team cannot block below the waist.

Throwback jerseys

The league also honored its 75th season by having each team wear throwback uniforms during selected games. The designs varied widely in their accuracy: Throwback uniforms are one-time or limited-time variations on a sports teams uniforms styled to resemble uniforms from that teams past. ...

  • While no attempt was made to simulate obsolete leather helmets which were phased out in the 1950s, teams simulating uniforms from the era of leather headgear simply removed all decals and striping from their regular hard-shell helmets.
  • All jerseys displayed the player's last name on the back side, though this practice did not become standard until the 1970s; it became mandatory in the NFL in the late 1970s.
  • Many of the uniforms worn were not accurate displays of previous team uniforms. For example, the Buffalo Bills throwback contained a red helmet with a white buffalo logo. However, the actual historic uniform displayed a white helmet with a red buffalo logo.
  • In most instances the fonts and typestyles used were only approximate matches at best.

Some teams continued to wear theirs throughout the season, including the Detroit Lions and the San Francisco 49ers. They proved to be so popular that the 49ers, the New York Jets, and the New York Giants eventually returned to wearing them full-time, in slightly modified forms, soon afterwards. And after the NFL modified its rules to allow teams to wear alternate jerseys in 2002, the San Diego Chargers selected their throwbacks as their third uniforms.

Cleveland Indians - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4092 words)
The team opened the 1994 season with a new stadium, Jacobs Field, and with it came the success and the spirits of their movie counterparts.
The 1994 MLB Season ended prematurely, with a Players Union strike; on the day the strike began, the Indians were one game behind the Chicago White Sox -- their newly-formed AL Central rivals-- with 49 left to be played.
One of the highlights of the season was a game televised nationally on ESPN on August 5th, where the Indians erased a 12-run deficit to the Mariners and won the game in extra innings, now known as the Impossible Return.
