Officiating video: Week 8 in Dallas

This week, NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino focused on only two plays from Week 8. While short, the rules are important. The two referenced rule clarifications happened in Dallas when Seattle visited Dallas.

  • First, we reviewed the rules for blockers with a focus on the direction in which the blockers are allowed to block.
  • Second, Blandino discussed the rules regarding two consecutive timeouts and in this case, it was due to too many men on the field.

The video is posted here.
