Many of our readers are familiar with the differences between the 3-4 and 4-3 defenses, and the variations of those fronts you'll see across the NFL. but many are not.

Surprising news out of Baltimore, where linebacker Zach Orr is retiring from the NFL after three seasons. He led the Ravens in tackles this year but an injury near the end of the year led to finding a congenital neck/spine condition that would endanger Orr if he played further. I'm sure there will be discussion about how this is yet another young player retiring from the NFL, but it's not solely due to injuries from the game itself. That's not what the word "congenital" means.

I never know when to post this stuff in Extra Points. Do we wait until they actually move? Until the owners approve? Is just filing paperwork enough? Anyway, the Raiders are moving to Las Vegas assuming they can get approval from 23 out of 31 other owners. (They will.) Apparently, they will stay in Oakland for the next two seasons, because their lease says they can and the Vegas stadium isn't built yet. So, that should be interesting. It's not like there's a history of fans turning on teams after they announce they're moving out of town, or anything.

AFC teams fared notably better than NFC teams as far as injuries are concerned as the playoff field was whittled down to four.

More head coaching news: In less than a year, Anthony Lynn has gone from running backs coach to offensive coordinator to interim head coach of the Bills to head coach of the new Los Angeles Football Clippers. This is interesting, because Lynn has been a coach in the league for 17 years but always as a position coach until Greg Roman was fired by Buffalo early in this season. He's never gone through a training camp in any kind of management position -- not as a coordinator, let alone as a head coach.
This leaves San Francisco as the last open job. Anyone want it?

The Saints were 2016's oldest team, and the Rams were once again the youngest. Are more rookies starting than ever before in the NFL? 2016 was the youngest season we have tracked yet.
