http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/28/nfl-rule-changes-for-2012/The NFL’s owners voted to change five on-field rules, voted not to change two on-field rules, voted to change one bylaw and voted to table five bylaw proposals at the league meeting on March 28.
Proposed rules changes:
1. FAILED: Giving the authority to determine replay reviews to the replay official in the booth, not the referee on the field.
2. FAILED: Modifying the horse-collar tackle rule to remove the exception for quarterbacks in the pocket, so that a quarterback in the pocket may not be yanked down by the back of his shoulder pads or inside collar of his jersey.
3. PASSED: Changing overtime so that the postseason rule will be used in the regular season as well, and no regular-season games will be ended on a field goal on the first possession of overtime.
