Quote:
NFL owners voted Wednesday to extend the league's new overtime rules to the regular season and to allow instant replay in all plays involving turnovers.

The new overtime rules, in place last season but only for the playoffs, allows each team to get at least one possession in overtime unless the team getting the ball first scores a touchdown.

The voting came during the final day of the NFL owners' meetings at The Breakers.

Also approved were the review of plays involving turnovers, thus following up on last year's decision to automatically review all scoring plays. Atlanta Falcons President/CEO Rich McKay, who chairs the Competition Committee, said the expectation is the two rules should drastically cut down on the number of coaches' challenges.

I liked the rule change in the playoffs, although when Denver torched Pittsburgh on the first play of overtime for a TD it was irrelevant.

The turnover review is a good move but the change I'd like to have seen is to encourage the zebras to let the play 'play out' before whistling the ball dead in those kind of situations. On occasions last year reviews would've ruled turnovers and moved the ball well up the field, resulted in a score, resulted in a penalty, resulted in a turnover BACK to the original team, etc. but because of the urgency to blow the whistle the plays were stopped before an outcome could be reached.

I'm sure someone with a better memory can pick out a few situations from games last year but I know I got as frustrated as the commentators regularly about bad decisions being made because the play was stopped too soon.

Let it 'play out' first, then go back and review what happened.
