    question:

    can you kick and chase (and regather) in NFL after the QB passes?

    You can only kick from behind the line of scrimmage. So technically yes, but not if you caught a pass downfield (or had run the ball past the line of scrimmage).

    Yep, you can only advance the ball forward if it hasn't passed the line of scrimmage.
    Backwards passes are fine though, but rarely used since the punishment for a turnover is too great.

    That's true but the rules re kicking are separate. You cannot deliberately kick the ball in any direction unless you are behind the line of scrimmage. E.g. even the ball has been fumbled and is lying live on the ground beyond the line of scrimmage, if you intentionally kick it that is a penalty.

    The other issue is that the kicking team can't be first touch the ball after a kick that goes beyond the line of scrimmage (they often do....this simply results in a dead ball and possession going to the receiving team at the spot of the foul....so you see the kick team send guys downfield and try to down a punt near the end zone).

    Can I get some opinions from some people in the know?

    Three games this weekend. Please rank them in terms of likelihood:

    Houston beating Tennessee;
    Indianapolis beating Pittsburgh;
    Detroit beating Atlanta.

    Cheers.

    The Detroit game is in London HJ, so be careful of that one. Funny shit happens when teams play out of the country.

    Houston
    Detroit
    Indianapolis (I actually think Pittsburgh are a real shot.....playing on real grass outdoors isn't so much indianapolis' thing)

    Houston should win easily, the Titans are garbage!
    Indianapolis will give it a red hot go but are missing Wayne and probably Richardson (yes I know probably not a big loss, but still a running back loss all the same), I get the feeling the Steelers will get this one though
    Lions should win on form

    Thanks for the input.

    I had a Free Bet on Luxbet that I needed to put on something paying $1.50 or more and those three games were just over $1.50. I've put $186 on Houston @ $1.56.

    Fingers crossed.

    Steelers have been a bit out of sorts this year.
    I reckon the Colts are more than a good chance of winning.

    That's what i'm hoping, The Parra supporter in me just can't ever expect a win, even though we've just won 5 games straight and the defence are killing it at the moment!

    I think Houstan are just as Garbage as Tennesse....They probably still win but the odds aren't very enticing away from home...

    Colts should have to much points for the steelers-There attacks woefull.

    Tottenham at home are appealing to me at $1.70.Love those odds

    But looking at NFL I like all of these.
    - Greenbay at $2.17 (prob best overs of all games)
    - Phili at $2.10
    - Bengals at $2.07-This would be my tip of week.Not sure why but its a must win for the Bengals.There at home and have a good record against Bally.There two losses have come too a desperate patriots and a red hot Colts side.And they stunk it up last week.They cant play that bad.Bengals have also won 12 in a row at home prior to there draw with Carolina...
    My bet of the week ; )

    Colts will smash steelers-They cant score points.Colts are inline for top spot finish IMO

    Nope. Canada has their own league (play different rules, but similarish game....only 3 downs to get 10 yards....12 players).
