The clock rule is fine. The kneel down is fine. There are plenty more things wrong with the rules then for you to call this the worst in the game, good god dude.

With the exception of the last two minutes of the first half and the last five minutes of the second half, the game clock will be restarted following a kickoff return, a player going out of bounds on a play from scrimmage, or after declined penalties when appropriate on the referee’s signal.

It would seem that the nfl has made rules to try and bring some excitement to the end of games. I like the idea of the clock only stopping when yardage is gained.
