NFL Owners To Hold Spring Meetings In Orlando
ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — More than a dozen playing rules proposals and seven bylaws will be considered this week NFL owners at their spring meetings in Orlando.
Among the items up for discussion is expanding the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams, although a vote on such a move is uncertain.
Some changes seem to be sure things: extending the height of the goal posts 5 feet to help determine if kicks are good; eliminating overtime in preseason games; placing fixed TV cameras on the goal lines, end lines and sidelines to help replay reviews.
Perhaps the juiciest suggestions came from the Patriots. They want to move the line of scrimmage to the 25 for extra points, and to allow coaches to challenge any calls except on scoring plays, which are automatically reviewed.
