NFL is considering a rule that would prevent the Patriots from throwing passes longer than five yards

once they gain a four-touchdown lead.

If the opposing team makes it a three-score game, the Patriots would be allowed to file an appeal for "more creative routes," but receivers Randy Moss and Wes Welker are no longer allowed to be on the field together in the second half.

League officials hope the new rule, dubbed "The Other Brady Bill," will provide more acceptable final scores, and improve the self-esteem of players across the league.

according to Matt Mosley.

UPDATE: Rich Tandler recounts episodes when the Redskins ran up the score.
