Instant replay in the NFL has not come without controversy over the years. Look to last year’s NFC Championship game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints for evidence. This no-call on instant replay has become one of the most infamous (if not the most infamous) in NFL history. In fact, it lit a fire under the Competition Committee to hold a vote to allow an amendment to the instant replay rule. This upcoming year pass interference will be a reviewable play.
Will this improve the game? Will this take away from the human element of the game, as many traditionalists believe? Time will only tell, but speaking of time, this is not the first time the league moved into uncharted waters regarding instant replay. Throughout many decades, the league has continued to tweak the review process in an attempt to perfect instant replay in the NFL. This episode follows the history of instant replay in chronological order. So strap on your seatbelt and let’s get this baby up to 88mph.
