Regarding Touchbacks

A touchback is a ruling which is made and signaled by an official when the ball becomes dead on or behind a team's own goal line.

From Football Perspective:

In March of 2011, the NFL voted to move kickoffs up from the 30 to the 35-yard line. That impact has been significant, and the league responded by placing a greater emphasis on kickers who can boom kickoffs into the opposing end zone.

In 2016, the NFL moved up where offenses would start following a touchback from the 20 to the 25-yard line, which made returners more likely to just take a touchback. That impact has been marginal.

Blocked Punts

There were only 8 blocked punts during the 2019 NFL season.
