After touchdowns, the teams will have three options:

•Kicking an extra point with the ball snapped from the 15-yard-line

•Running a play from the 2-yard line for a two-point conversion

•Running a play from the 10-yard line for a three-point conversion

Onsides kicks will be different

•Option 1: Traditional onsides kick from the 25-yard line

•Option 2: Run a “4th & 12” play from own 33-yard line. If successful, the team keeps the ball, if unsuccessful, defense takes possession where play ends.

Overtime Rules

Where this has become an issue in the NFL, this is how it will be done in the USFL:

Two Forward Passes

The USFL will allow offenses to throw two forward passes behind the line of scrimmage.

Other noteable rules changes:

Pass interference beyond the line of scrimmage, but 15 yards or less is a spot foul. Beyond 15 yards, the penalty will be 15 yards. IF a review reveals a tackler intentionally interfered more than 15 yards down the field, it will become a spot foul.

All reviews will come from the FOX Sports Control Center in Los Angeles. Each team gets one challenge per game.
