NFL Changes Ineligible Receiver Rule, And Ravens Still Bitter About It

NFL Ineligible Receiver Rule Change

During last year’s AFC Divisional Round match-up between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens, the Pats resorted to all sorts of crazy offensive formations that confused the Ravens and helped them earn a 35-31 victory.  Should they run into John Harbaugh‘s club again next season, New England is going to have to find another way to confuse the Baltimore defense.

That’s because the NFL instituted a rule earlier today that would make it illegal for any player wearing an eligible receiver number (any number from 1-49 and from 80-89) to report as ineligible and line up outside the box.  Doing so will result in a 5-yard penalty for illegal substitution.

The Baltimore Ravens sure seem to be pleased with the alterations to the ineligible receiver rule, although they’re still probably thinking it came one year too late.
