Also, critically think about how they should shape your wagering strategy.

Automatic Replay Rule:

During the offseason, the NFL changed the replay rule to include extra point and 2-point conversion tries.  Remember that? The rule also lets the officials review a scoring play. One that was negated by a foul or a penalty. This rule could tip the point total in either direction, so when you are handicapping a game, be cognizant about how many penalties the teams you are considering are committing each game.

Kick Offs and Punt Returns:

The NFL has amended the rule concerning the punt returner and the player tasked with returning kick offs. In the past, a player would need to waive his hand in the air to signal for a fair catch.
