IRVING, Texas -- There will be no immediate change to the challenge rule before the start of the playoffs, a source involved in the process said Wednesday.
All scoring plays are automatically reviewed, but per the rule, if a team challenges a scoring play, it is given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. The rule states, "the Replay Official cannot initiate a review of any ruling against a team that commits a foul that delays the next snap."
The NFL plans to discuss the rule Wednesday at the December Special League Meeting, but no change to the challenge rule is expected to take place until the offseason.
