 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NFL wants to avoid a replay of what happened in Detroit on Thanksgiving when Lions coach Jim Schwartz threw a challenge flag on a touchdown run, negating an automatic replay.
NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson promised Wednesday that the rule would be fixed before next season.
During a game against Houston, Schwartz threw the challenge flag on an 81-yard touchdown run by the Texans' Justin Forsett.
Replays clearly showed Forsett's knee and elbow touched the turf at the Houston 25 when he was hit by Lions defenders.
Because all scoring plays are automatically reviewed, Schwartz was given a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and the review was not allowed.
Anderson says the most important thing is getting the call right.
