If you were inconsolable after the Saints were the victims of a blatant missed call at a critical juncture of last season's NFC Championship Game, then you'll probably be happy with this news: pass interference is now reviewable.
In a major move, NFL owners voted to allow pass interference calls (and no calls) to be challenged:
So, in a quick summation, these reviews will be pretty standard. Just like regular plays, coaches can challenge DPI/OPI calls by using one of their challenges. Under two minutes of each half, the booth will initiate the challenge. This marks the first time in NFL history that a penalty of any kind will be reviewable.
It's pretty surprising that the owners voted 31-1 to approve this, but I'm interested to see how it works out. What say you? Leave your take on our Fox Sports 97.5 Facebook page.
