NFL owners make it easier for coaches to get extra challenge

The NFL owners voted to make a couple of rules changes at the annual league meeting on Monday in Orlando, Florida. One change is a tweak to coaching challenges.

Proposed by the Detroit Lions, the owners voted to make it easier to have a third coaching challenge.

Previously, coaches would get a third challenge if they were successful on both challenges during the game.

Now, under the new change, coaches will have a third challenge if they are successful on one of their first two.

This probably won’t do much for the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Jonathan Gannon only challenged one ruling on the field all season. If that continues in 2024, Gannon will have no use of an extra challenge. He never once ran out of challenges in a game.
