Pro Bowl will feature changes to onside kick, pre-snap penalties

Pro Bowl will feature changes to onside kick, pre-snap penalties

Team A may elect to give Team B the ball at Team B's 25-yard line, beginning a new series of downs with a first-and-10. The biggest challenge in curtailing kickoffs has always been the threat of getting rid of onside kick options, which would hinder a team's chance of retaining possession in a comeback attempt.

The changes would only be for the annual Pro Bowl matchup. Instead of kicking the ball away, John Harbaugh could have put the ball in the hands of the presumptive 2019 MVP and rolled the dice on scoring back-to-back touchdowns - and then go for it again. In the AAF, in certain situations, scoring teams had the option to run a 4th-and-12 play from their own 28-yard line to try and keep possession of the ball.

Deshaun Watson and Laremy Tunsil will be in Orlando, Florida this week for the National Football League 2020 Pro Bowl. The second is a tweak regarding false starts for receivers.

The phone costs an eye-watering $1,500, or $62.49 per month for 24 months on a payment plan with Verizon Wireless. In fact, starting February 6, the Razr should even be available in stores, in some limited quantities.


A flexed, eligible receiver in a two-point stance who flinches or picks up one foot, as long as his other foot remains partially on the ground and he resets for one second prior to the snap. The new, second option for the scoring team would serve as a substitute for an onside kick. Call this the one-foot down exception to the normal false start definition of a player moving forward or simulating the start of a play when set, suddenly, quickly or abruptly.

There's no admission charge to either the Pro Bowl experience, which is open daily from Wednesday - Sunday, or team practices, which are open to the public with the NFL OnePass app.
