When you sit down to watch an NFL game on a Sunday afternoon next fall, be prepared to sit a little longer.

The NFL owners voted last week to approve a rule proposal that allows for offensive and defensive pass interference, including non-calls, to be subject to review.

Coaches can challenge those calls in the first 28 minutes of each half. In the final two minutes of each half, those calls will be subject to a booth review.

This rule change is only for the 2019 season.

Owners passed the provision, 31-1, at the annual League Meeting in Phoenix. The Cincinnati Bengals were the lone team to vote against pass interference replay reviews, according to nfl.com.

The good thing is coaches will still have only two challenge flags, so they might not be throwing it on every pass play.

This decision came after New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton said that the competition committee agreed to an amended rule-change proposal in which coaches would be allowed to challenge offensive and defensive pass interference even if there was no flag on the play. 

The reviewability of pass interference calls and non-calls came to the forefront after the NFC Championship Game in January, when Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman hit Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis early on a third-down play late in the fourth quarter. Everybody who watches football remembers that play. No penalty was called on the play and the Rams went on to win the game and make the Super Bowl.

The aftermath prompted outrage from Saints fans, coaches and brass, including owner Gayle Benson, who went so far as to release a statement on the non-call.

The one-year rule change wasn’t just about pleasing the aggrieved Saints. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters that it was important that teams came to a consensus on expanding replay review.

The mandate delivered by ownership to approve this expansion of replay review came as a surprise to some, but coaches were reportedly the driving force behind a deeper consideration of the rule proposal, namely Payton, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Chiefs coach Andy Reid. The latter two reportedly advocated for extending a meeting between coaches and the competition committee to consider and then amend the original proposal.

Now fans will have to wait until next fall to see what kind of impact it will have on the game, and if there will be time to get refreshments during the delays.
