PHOENIX -- NFL owners have approved a massive philosophical expansion of its replay review system, bowing to pressure from coaches and fans who were outraged by a missed pass interference call in the NFC Championship Game.

For one year only, pass interference -- both offensive and defensive -- will be reviewable, the first penalties and judgment calls ever to be added to the list of approved reviews. Moreover, coaches will be able to challenge non-calls for pass interference. The replay booth, in conjunction with the league's officiating office in New York, will initiate those challenges in the final two minutes of each half.

Meanwhile, owners made two expected votes earlier Tuesday. They made permanent the 2018 changes to the kickoff rule, which had been made on a one-year trial basis. They also voted to eliminate all blindside blocks, not just those to the head or neck area, to increase safety on punts and other plays.

The NFL wanted to avoid the possibility of this happening to someone like the Patriots and having to re-write the rules mid-game.

To think that none of this would’ve happened if Sean Payton had just decided to run the ball...

If you want to remove doubt from the game put sensors in the ball for goal line or sideline plays. Instead they increase the "human factor " which will leave it up to one person's interpretation.

Big mistake. You cant legislate everything. They have opened the door for flopping and holding up the whole game, for inconclusive evidence of a guy falling down for the slightest of contact

Could we penalize flopping with unsportsmanlike to limit the number of wasted replays?
