Major rule changes

  • The instant replay system that was in effect since the 1986 NFL season is repealed. Instant replay would not return to the league until the 1999 NFL season.
  • To reduce injuries, any offensive player who is lined up in the backfield before the snap cannot chop block a defensive player who is already engaged above the waist by another offensive player.
