    Default NFL Makes Pass Interference Reviewable

    Jason Owens,Yahoo Sports•March 26, 2019

    The NFL approved a rule change Tuesday that will make pass interference calls and non-calls subject to replay review and coaches challenges.

    NFL owners voted Tuesday to implement the new rule on a one-year trial basis.

    Prior to Tuesday’s rule change, pass interference was not replay-review eligible.

    Coaches will now be able to use one of their allotted challenges to call for replay review of a pass interference situation prior to the final two minutes of a half. Like other reviews, pass interference replays in the final two minutes of a half will be initiated by the league’s officiating office.

    NFC championship controversy prompted change

    The change was prompted by the controversy in the NFC championship game that saw the Los Angeles Rams advance to the Super Bowl past the New Orleans Saints after a non-call on what appeared to be blatant pass interference on Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman at a critical juncture of the game.

    The league reportedly started considering a change to the rule shortly after the game in the wake of outcry from fans, coaches and players.

    Saints pleased with rule change

    The Saints posted their reaction to the rule on Twitter shortly after the announcement.

    Team owner Gayle Benson, who slammed the NFL after the loss to the Rams, vowed in January to “aggressively pursue changes in NFL policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again.”

    She said Tuesday that the rule change was the result she was seeking.

    “This is what I wanted to happen,” Benson said, per NFL Network. “That’s why I made my statement. (The non-call in the title game) will never happen again.”
