NFL Rule Changes for 2012

Recommended Posts

The 2012 Season has a few new rules:

Overtime will no longer be sudden death, unless the team who wins the coin toss scores a touchdown.

All turnovers will be reviewed

Adding a loss of down to the penalty for kicking a loose ball, as is the case in college football.

Adopting the college rule for too many men on the field, which is a dead-ball foul if a team lines up on offense for more than three seconds, or if a team on defense lines up with too many men and the snap is imminent. In those cases, the officials will blow the play dead and assess a five-yard penalty. This change wouldn’t affect the rulings on players running off the field who don’t get off in time.
