PHOENIX (AP) - Pass interference, whether flagged or not, can be challenged by coaches and reviewed by officials next season.

NFL team owners voted Tuesday on a one-year trial basis to include those often-controversial penalties in the officiating replay review system.
Coaches still will have two challenges per game, and in the final two minutes of a half or fourth quarter or for all of overtime, the replay official can order a review of offensive or defensive pass interference.
The major change - owners traditionally have been highly reluctant to include any penalties in the replay process - stems from the egregious missed call in the NFC championship game that likely led to the Rams making the Super Bowl and the Saints falling short.
