  1. Very fun and educational “punting” quiz. I enjoyed taking it and learning a) how little I know of all the more detailed NFL rules and b) how many detailed rules there are just in punting alone. Ay Caramba! Between this and PK’s writeup of Steratore’s crew it has definitely given me a better appreciation for the “third team”. Thanks.

  2. First of all, in regards to Q8, I am pretty sure the correct option isn’t listed. There is no provision for an untimed down except in the case of a penalty. B DOES have the option for a free kick, but that’s significantly different than an untimed down.
