New NFL Kickoff Rule
The NFL is trying to make the game safer by tweaking the kickoff rules. Get ready for a lot more touchbacks. Try to contain your excitement.
I’m all for making the game safer, as long as it doesn’t significantly alter the game at the same time. There will be a lot more touchbacks in the NFL this year (assuming there will be a season), because of the new kickoff rule. Kicking off from the 35-yard line compared to kicking off from the 30-yard line is a significant difference. I’m not on board with this change whatsoever.
