So if a WR dives for a ball and slips up and falls down by accident, he can get up and still run for the touchdown? because no one made him fall down, right?


When did this rule start?

The pro rules are completely different from college all around.If a player falls down or dives for a ball and makes the catch,etc...he can get up and continue.If during the play contact with the opposing team makes him fall then the play ends.This has been around for quite some time.
