    Below Average, but acceptable

    Get a book that covers more than just the rules. There are several.

    Football for Dummies - Covers a bit more. Same author and same information, but out of date rules.

    Nfl Football in the Nutshell - Great Read & Good Reference, Covers all aspects of football in the NFL with 2014 rule changes.
