NFL approves new rules for penalty enforcement on turnovers

The approval of a ban on hip-drop tackles will be the headline at this year’s league meeting. Additionally, the league has also approved a change in how fouls are enforced on plays resulting in a change of possession.

The Competition Committee proposed a change that would allow penalties for major fouls committed by the offense, like unnecessary roughness, to be enforced on plays when there are fouls committed by both teams. This proposal was made to ensure consistency in enforcing major fouls and not ignoring offenses in these situations.

On Monday, the NFL announced that the proposal was approved by team owners in a vote. It takes two-thirds of the league’s teams to approve a change for it to become part of the rulebook.

Another change that was approved was allowing teams a third challenge if either of their first two challenges is successful. This change gives teams more opportunities to challenge incorrect calls on the field.
