Last Week’s Rule Book Review 

K1 kicks off from K’s 40. The kick is caught by R1 at R’s 5-yd line. R2 then clips at the 50-yd line. After the clip, R1 fumbles at R’s 20- yd line, where R3 picks up fumble and advances for TD



The basic spot is where the run ended, which was the fumble at R’s 20. After penalty enforcement, it would be R’s ball, first and 10, at R’s 10-yard line.
