(3/27/19) NFL team owners voted Tuesday on a one-year trial basis to include those often-controversial penalties in the officiating replay review system.

Coaches still will have two challenges per game, and in the final two minutes of a half or fourth quarter or for all of overtime, the replay official can order a review of offensive or defensive pass interference.

The major change owners traditionally have been highly reluctant to include any penalties in the replay process stems from an egregious missed call in the NFC championship game that likely led to the Rams making the Super Bowl and the Saints falling short.
