  1. A, 2/10 from A’s 35 YL. Late in the second quarter. A7 is in a shotgun formation at A’s 27 YL. A26, who is a running back is lined up behind the left tackle and turned sideways toward the center. A7, in order to stop the clock, throws the ball at the feet of A26 who has turned toward A7.

  2. K, 4/8 on K’s 10 YL. Kicker, K13’s punt is blocked, never crosses the NZ, and winds up back in K’s EZ where opposing players simultaneously recover it. Safety or TD?

  3. K, 4/10 on K’s 45 YL. K1 kicks the ball beyond the NZ. R11 muffs the ball back behind the NZ where K1 recovers and: (a) falls on the ball at K’s 40 YL; or (b) throws a FP to K88 which is complete at the 50 YL and R17 interfered with K88; or (c) K1 punts the ball and R1 FC at his 30 YL, or (d) runs to R’s 40 YL.

  4. K, 4/10 at K’s 40 YL. K13 kicks the ball almost straight up. The ball is caught by K27 behind the LOS. All players “freeze”, not knowing what to do. K27 then throws the ball forward and OOB.

  5. K, 4/5 at the 50 YL. K’s kick is touched by K44 at R’s 5 YL. R17 muffs the ball at R’s 6 YL and the ball is recovered by K55 at R’s 10 YL. During the kick, R81 holds at R’s 15 YL. Clock status?

  6. A, 1/G at B’s 9 YL. A12’s pass is intercepted by B36 at B’s 3 YL. His momentum carries him into the EZ where he is hit and fumbles the ball into the field of play. In (a) the fumble is grounded and A77 muffs the ball at the B 2 YL. The ball hits the pylon; or (b), the fumble has not been grounded (still in flight), and A 77 muffs the ball at the B 2 YL. The ball hits the pylon.

  7. A, 1/10 on A’s 10 YL. QB A10 drops back into A’s EZ where he is tackled by B67 who twists A10’s face mask. The tackle by B67 causes A10 to fumble the ball which rolls forward and OOB at A’s 5 YL.
