NEW ORLEANS, La. (WWL-TV)- The heartbreaking ‘No Call’ that cost the Saints a trip to the Super Bowl could lead to a significant rule change in the NFL.
According to a report from The Washington Post, the NFL’s rulemaking competitions committee will consider making pass interference calls subject to instant replays and reviews.
“It will be discussed at length along with additional fouls that coaches feel should be subject to review,” one person familiar with the league’s inner workings told The Post, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing public furor over the botched call in New Orleans.
Saints head coach Sean Payton is a member of the committee.
A high-ranking official with one NFL team confirmed to The Post that making pass interference reviewable will be considered, adding: “And there will be discussion on [replay] review of calls and non-calls.”
Any change would have to be approved by at least three-quarters of the 32 owners.
