Forward progress is the end of advancement of the ball in a runner’s possession...

rule 2 15 1
Rule 2-15-1

… or the forward-most point of the ball when it is fumbled out of bounds toward the opponent’s goal...

rule 2 15 17
Rule 2-15-1

… and it determines the dead-ball spot.

exception
Exception
  • When part of the ball becomes dead in a team’s EZ, it is a safety.
  • Forward progress is not at the foremost point of the ball (5-3-4).
rule 2 15 2
Rule 2-15-2

When an airborne player makes a catch, forward progress is the furthest point of advancement after he possesses the ball if contacted by a defender.

  • Fumble or strip must occur:
    • On contact.
    • While runner is moving forward
clusters20
Clusters
  • When pushed back runner breaks free:
    • Wait
    • If he does not advance and is downed, progress is at point of initial contact
    • If he does advance voluntarily, allow play to continue
clusters21
Clusters
  • Delayed ruling may be necessary to GET IT RIGHT
goal line plays

  • It’s not any different than in the middle of the field.
  • If you think of forward progress as a plane, then the GL is just another plane.

QB Sacks
  • R is on his own most of the time.
  • Tolerance is one yard.
  • Contact spot to hitting ground is typically:
    • 3 yds (no resistance).
    • 5 yds (with hopping around).
