    NFL bans Ravens' crazy kickoff dropkick after watching Baltimore use it just one time

    After having Justin Tucker experiment with a new type of kickoff earlier this year, the Ravens won't be allowed to utilize their new kick anymore, and that's because it has now been deemed illegal by the NFL.

    Ravens coach John Harbaugh raised some eyebrows back in Week 3 when he sent Tucker out in a clear onside kick situation during Baltimore's game against Kansas City. With 2:01 left to play, and the Ravens trailing 33-28, the Chiefs thought an onside kick was coming, but instead, Tucker hit them with a surprise dropkick.

    When is the NFL going to ban this?

    It didn't come from the Patriots, that's what is wrong with it.

    Not a fan of Goodell's obsessive rulebook fetish.

    I lost a bet with Pink and all I got was this dumb avatar that I've had awhile anyway.

    I don't understand why this play would be illegal. It doesn't give one team an unfair advantage. It doesn't put players at risk any more so than a more traditional onside kick.

    I just don't see the justification.
