Looking over the editorial changes, it looks like they're going to (hopefully) clear up the change from last year.

5-1-1(b)

Quote:
ART. 1 . . . The team which next puts the ball in play by scrimmage following a free kick, touchback or fair catch is awarded a series of four consecutively numbered downs in which to advance the ball to the line to gain.

a. Each awarded first down starts a new series of four consecutively numbered downs.

b. The referee shall have the authority to correct the number of the next down prior to the ball becoming live after a new series of downs is awarded.
