    That first play with the titans kicking off to Green Bay doesn’t make any sense because everyone knows no matter what YOU CANT BE THE FIRST PERSON TO TOUCH THE BALL WHILE ITS OUT OF BOUNDS PERIOD. So how tf does that work????

    Rugby league got the world's best drop kickers, you should just get them to drop kick instead of the normal field goal

  • Chris

    Some of these rules are actually very commonly exploited in rugby, especially drop goals, and putting your foot on the sideline before receiving the ball. So as rugby and NFL fan, this is like watching early man discover fire lol

    I wish you would have showed more of the Ravens blatant holding on the Bengals on the non-punt safety. The whole point of that: a game (or half) cannot end on a defensive penalty, but can (and does) on an offensive penalty. All 10 Ravens (excluding punter obviously) were told to just tackle their man, blatant holding, WWF takedown stuff. It was genius.

    The other interesting rule on the free kick is that if there is a replay the down penalty on the first down after a fair catch he team can elect to free kick after the penalty has been enforced.
    So say their is a fair catch and its about a 60 yard free kick. Coach thinks ah a little too far. SO they elect to run a play. If the down is played and the defense is off-sides. The offense can elect to free kick after the penalty has been enforced. Now its a 55 yard free kick.

    When you can end a game based off of dumb rules, or due to a clock, this is exactly why I love baseball. No matter what, it will always have to come down to a 1 on 1 match between two athletes that no clock can stop.

    Video #9 - Saints vs Rams - Free Kick Return
    Everybody assumed that the Football bounced Out Of Bounds; because, that is what normally happens when the Football lands in that area.
    RULE: Football is In Play as long as it doesn't go Out Of Bounds.
    RULE: The Play doesn't End until an Official Blows A Whistle to End The Play.
    Always keep your eye on the Football.

    • Andrew Kappler
      Andrew Kappler 17 days ago +3

      The NFL has a little-known rule called the fair catch free kick which allows a team to fair catch a punt and then line up to kick the ball on the next play, without the defense able to rush and block the kick. If the ball goes through the uprights, it's three points, just like a field goal.

    • CharlieChanization
      CharlieChanization 17 days ago +1

      Old rule with its origins going back to rugby. Technically if you make a fair catch you can take a kick from the spot of the catch, its just that a vast majority of fair catches happen significantly outside of field goal range. On top of that, if you make a fair catch in close enough range you'd normally just make a drive.

      My Reply was to be informative for Non-Americans who don't understand how the USA divides itself by Regional Names.
      Wisconsin & Michigan & Indiana are both North Central States and Great Lakes States; but, the other North Central States aren't Great Lake States; and, the other Great Lake States aren't North Central States.
      Having lived in Wisconsin, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior are gimmes for me. I always had problems remembering the name Lake Huron.

      The USA's New England States is a Region within the USA that makes up a Group Of USA States.
      New England consists of Main and Connicut and Massachusettes and Rhode Island and New Hampshire and Vermont.
      I was born and raised in The North Central States of the USA. Wisconsin and Michigan and Ohio and Kentucky and Indian and Iowa.
      The Great Lake States of the USA include Minnesota and Wisconsin and Indiana and Michigan and Ohio and New York; because, they border Lake Superior and Lake Michigan and Lake Ontario and Lake Erie and I forget the name of the 5th one.

  • Pat Downs
    Pat Downs 17 days ago

    The officials are obviously right. But I thought if a player goes out of bounds he's out of the play. I guess not.

    "Re-entering the Field of Play. A player may not run out of bounds and then run back inbounds to make a play. For example, a receiver may not run down the sidelines, step out of bounds and make a catch. If a player makes a catch under those circumstances, a penalty flag is thrown for illegal touching."

    Brian420687 20 days ago

    I don't understand this rule because there's another rule that specifically States if you go out of bounds you cannot be the first player to touch the ball so he would have had to have a penalty because he went out of bounds and was the first player to touch the ball you can't do that

    • Mostlyharmless1985
      Mostlyharmless1985 20 days ago

      Brian420687 if you are touching the ball while out of bounds the ball is marked out of bounds from the point you’ve touched the ball. If you go out of bounds, and then go back in bounds you can not be the first person to touch the ball. Touching the ball while out of bounds is allowed.

      Funny thing is, it can never happen again because the rule's been changed to the ball is dead as soon as it hits the ground in the end zone, but it wasn't changed until 2004 (10 years after this play).
