NFL rules Question

I noticed during the preseason the clock would run even when a played went out of bounds. I watched the clock so much cuz I wanted Ryan to get more series. It was s struggle sometimes cuz our D was giving up 9 minute FG drives a good bit when Ryan was trying to get his playing time in (frustrating).

Anyway, is this just for the preseason? Or does the clock really run now when a player goes outta bounds until like 2 minutes or something? The game goes by wayyy too quick with a winding clock like that. Did anyone else notice this?

It has always been like that, or atleast it has been like that for a while. College football was the one that stopped the clock when a player went out of bounds but they too got rid of that rule starting this year.

I just remmeber Ryan came in I think the INDY game with 7 mins left in the first quarter. He went 3 and out, and didnt touch the ball again until 3 mins left in the 2nd quarter. Then I started watchin the clock and noticing it run and run and run even on out of bounds plays. Normally they wait until the teams breakin the huddle to start the clock winding in real games I thought.

Timing

1. The stadium game clock is official. In case it stops or is operating incorrectly, the Line Judge takes over the official timing on the field.

2. Each period is 15 minutes. The intermission between the periods is two minutes. Halftime is 12 minutes, unless otherwise specified.

3. On charged team time outs, the Field Judge starts watch and blows whistle after 1 minute 50 seconds, unless television does not utilize the time for commercial. In this case the length of the time out is reduced to 40 seconds.

4. The Referee will allow necessary time to attend to an injured player, or repair a legal player’s equipment.

5. Each team is allowed three time outs each half.

6. Time between plays will be 40 seconds from the end of a given play until the snap of the ball for the next play, or a 25-second interval after certain administrative stoppages and game delays.

7. Clock will start running when ball is snapped following all changes of team possession.

8. With the exception of the last two minutes of the first half and the last five minutes of the second half, the game clock will be restarted following a kickoff return, a player going out of bounds on a play from scrimmage, or after declined penalties when appropriate on the referee’s signal.

9. Consecutive team time outs can be taken by opposing teams but the length of the second time out will be reduced to 40 seconds.

10. When, in the judgment of the Referee, the level of crowd noise prevents the offense from hearing its signals, he can institute a series of procedures which can result in a loss of team time outs or a five-yard penalty against the defensive team.

I saw that when I researched it and so I just discarded it as being a good source for info. Which is why I am asking someone who would know. Thanks for trying though.

Its true. The team can lose Timeouts and be penalized from excessive crowd noise. Its not the yelling, but the horns and things that are manufactured to make noise. You know all those horns you hear from international soccer games? Can't use those in the NFL.

If its determined that a stadium is using "fake" cheering over the speakers while the crowd is cheering they can be fined.
