The Seahakws have placed guard Ben Hamilton and tackle/end Red Bryant on injured reserve, ending their seasons. The real news here is the loss of Bryant, a defensive tackle whose move to end was one of the keys to Seattle's shockingly good run defense so far this season. Bryant ranks in the top ten ends in the league in percentage of his team's rush plays, and the Seahawks are near the top of the league in nearly all of our defensive line stats. The Seahawks have given up only seven 20-plus-yard runs all year -- four of them came in the second half against Oakland after Bryant got hurt.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
