National Football League rule change proposal would radically alter the onside kick scenario

National Football League clubs received a list of potential rules changes on Thursday.

By Philadelphia; to amend Rule 6, Section 1, Article 1, to provide an alternative to the onside kick that would allow a team who is trailing in the game an opportunity to maintain possession of the ball after scoring (4th and 15 from the kicking team's 25-yard line).

The May 28 owners meetings will be held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Teams would still have the option to attempt a traditional onside kick instead. Battista reports owners will vote on sky judge, a potential eighth game official used to monitor the game.

The Eagles had proposed restoring preseason and regular-season overtime to 15 minutes and to implement rules to minimize the impact of the overtime coin toss. The teams also have proposed adding a senior technology advisor to the referee to assist the crew. A turnover on downs would obviously result in tremendous field position for the other team, but the play would nearly certainly have a higher success rate than the on-side kick. Either way, Pelissero gets the sense that some version of that concept will be tested in the preseason.

-Adding all placekicks and any scoring plays or turnovers negated by penalty as the instances calling for automatic booth review. That would make it harder for offenses to manipulate the clock by intentionally committing penalties.

Increased "defenseless player protection" for a kick or punt returner who is "in possession of the ball but who has not had time to avoid or ward off the impending contact of an opponent". But they have withdrawn the idea.

Coaches have been lobbying for additional officiating help for several years, and the league is looking for new ways to improve officiating after its failed one-year experiment of allowing pass interference calls to be reviewed by replay in 2019.
