NFL Rule Changes –

The NFL made rule changes that effect kickoffs and the instant replay.  NFL owners voted 26-6 to move kickoffs to the 35 yardline.  The rule also requires that coverage players line up no more than five yards behind the kickoff.  Owners also voted to keep touchbacks at the 20 yard line.  The instant replay rule was changed by a 30-2 vote to include all scoring plays.
