New NFL Rule: Consistency in Enforcement of Offensive Fouls and Additional Challenge Opportunities for Teams

The NFL has announced that a ban on hip-drop tackles has been approved at this year’s league meeting. However, another significant change was also approved, relating to how fouls are enforced during plays resulting in a change of possession.

The Competition Committee put forth a proposal that would allow penalties for major offensive fouls, such as unnecessary roughness, to be enforced on plays when there are fouls committed by both teams before the change of possession. This change aims to ensure consistency in enforcing all major fouls.

On Monday, the NFL announced that the proposal was approved by a vote of team owners. In order for a change to be added to the rulebook, two-thirds of the teams in the league must approve it.

Furthermore, the league also approved a proposal that would allow teams a third challenge if either of their first two challenges is successful. This change aims to give teams more opportunities to challenge calls and ensure fair play on the field.
