NFL: Expanded Review Extended Games By 1 Second in 2011

When the NFL announced that they would automatically review every scoring play, the initial complaints were that reviews after every score, combined with a high octane league, would combine for longer games.  The truth is, the reviews did extend the league games on average, but not by much, the average length for an NFL game only increased by 1 second.

The NFL should be happy with its decision, they made a call, stuck to it, and it turned out they were right.

Now we don’t have teams wasting a challenge for bad calls on huge plays, the booth automatically reviews it, and if the call is wrong (which only happened during 1% of all scoring reviews last season), they can fix it.
