Well, this is a story. According to the ref-watching site FootballZebras.com, the NFL fixed performance grades for referee Jerome Boger in order to ensure that Boger would qualify to be the referee for Super Bowl XLVII. Boger was downgraded on eight games, which should disqualify him from officiating in the playoffs, but appealed and had all eight reversed. But here's a question: Why on earth would the NFL fix things so Jerome Boger is officiating the Super Bowl? What's special about Boger. I have no idea.

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?
