NFL teams have proposed a total of 11 rule changes for the 2019 season, most of which are centered on the expansion of plays subject to video review.

Here's a rundown of the proposed rule changes, along with the team or teams that proposed the change:

-From the Kansas City Chiefs: Give both teams the opportunity to possess the ball at least once in overtime, even if the first team to possess the ball in overtime scores a touchdown.

-From the Chiefs: Eliminate overtime for preseason games.

-From the Chiefs: Eliminate the overtime coin toss so that the winner of the pregame coin toss will get to choose whether to kick, receive or defend a certain goal in overtime.

-From the Denver Broncos: Provide an alternative to the onside kick so that a team that is trailing has a chance maintain possession after scoring.

-From the Washington Redskins: Subject all plays that occur during a game to coaches' challenge or review by the Officiating department.

-From the Redskins: Add personal fouls as reviewable plays.

-From the Chiefs: Have all possible personal fouls, regardless of whether they were called on the field, subject to coaches' challenge.

-From the Carolina Panthers, Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks: Have all possible player safety-related fouls, regardless of whether they were called on the field, subject to coaches’ challenge.

-From the Eagles: Have all scoring plays and turnovers negated by a penalty automatically reviewed via replay.

-From the Broncos: Have all fourth-down plays spotted short of the line to gain or goal line automatically reviewed via replay.

-From the Broncos: Have all extra-point or two-point conversion tries automatically reviewed via replay.

The proposed changes will be discussed at the NFL's annual league meeting later this month.
