NFL approves new rules for penalty enforcement on turnovers

The NFL has announced that a ban on hip-drop tackles will be the headline for changes in this year’s league meeting. In addition, a change was made to how fouls are enforced on plays resulting in a change of possession.

The Competition Committee proposed a change allowing penalties for major fouls committed by the offense, such as unnecessary roughness, to be enforced on plays where there are fouls committed by both teams. This proposal aimed to ensure consistency in enforcing major fouls and not ignore offenses during these situations.

On Monday, the NFL announced that team owners had approved the proposal with two-thirds of the league’s teams voting in favor. As a result, it is now part of the rulebook.

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