Since the Judy Battista of NFL Network reported Wednesday, the Competition Committee decided against forcing coaches to challenge pass interference plays inside the warning.
The NFL’s Football Operations department announced the decision with head coaches, team personnel and officials. Teams will have one week to offer extra feedback before the final rule is communicated by the Competition Committee.
Within the announcement, the team said the replay official will stop the game to initiate an overview for PI”under stricter criteria” compared to other reviewable plays. The expectation is that the”stricter standards” will lessen the amount of reviews over the last two minutes of their halves, as pace of play is a concern given that each and every pass play could be reviewable.
“A decision about the field will only be reversed when there is’clear and clear visual evidence’ that warrants the change,” the statement added.
The last rule ascertained that”Hail Mary” plays will be subject to pass hindrance inspection but will be assessed in replay”consistent with the guidelines for officiating the play on the field.” The language of this”Hail Mary” rule indicates the replay official will probably defer to the on-field refs for almost all conclusion of game calls.
