Here's a good primer from the AP on the rule changes in the new Alliance of American Football which starts this coming weekend. Kickoffs are gone, but there's an opportunity to "onside kick" by converting fourth-and-12 from the 28. However, you're only allowed to try this if you are down 17 points, or in the final five minutes of the game. There's also a "SkyJudge" official whose job is to monitor the broadcast and correct egregious errors made by the officials on the field.
As you may have heard, the L.A. Rams had 5.49 adjusted line yards per carry this season, the most for any offense we have ever recorded. Josh Hermsmeyer, however, thinks that says less about the Rams' offensive line and more about the coaching abilities of Sean McVay.
