Won’t help Cleveland but maybe that is the play that finally helps get rid of the second dumbest rule in sports (after advancing 3/4 court in NBA).

The Chiefs getting a turnover instead allowing a TD on a stupid rule, caused by a blatant illegal hit that the refs missed, seems about right.

This is the dumbest rule in the NFL. Why is that a touchback?
The rule is really simple. If a loose ball becomes dead in the end zone, it is always a touchback or safety depending on which team put it in the end zone. The same rule that makes that a touchback makes a kickoff in the end zone a touchback, etc.

Helmet to helmet wasn’t even debatable. Led head first and drove right into his dome.

Baker is going to sling it in the second half. Game is over but at least Baker is gonna pad his stats

Shut up, Gene. Don’t waste my fucking time explaining it if it isn’t reviewable.

Offense intentionally rolling the ball into the end zone? Maybe?
They already have a pretty comprehensive rule on that.

My hunch is they don’t want players to try to fumble forward out of bounds to get a better spot but I think they already cleaned that up.

I do understand the rule. I just think it’s silly in its application. Fumble out of bounds and it’s not a change of possession. But the endzone is a magical place because of kickoffs.
