Pass Interference Becomes Reviewable in NFL

The Saints may finally get that win.

No, it won't undo the NFC championship game but it will give Sean Payton and other coaches the chance to avoid the same fate New Orleans did.

All offensive and defensive pass interference calls, including no-calls, can now be challenged, the league announced Tuesday. The change will be evaluated after one year.

Officials “will be able to correct clear errors” regardless of whether a flag was thrown on the play, according to the league.

Automatic replay review has also been expanded to include "scoring plays and turnovers negated by a foul, and any try attempt," including extra points and two-point conversions.

Payton "championed" the efforts, according to ESPN.
