The NFL's owners have voted down a proposal that would limit early kickoffs for the league's West Coast teams.

The proposal was brought forward by the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Chargers.

It would have limited how many road games Pacific teams could play early on the East Coast. The rule said that no team will be scheduled to play more than three away games with a scheduled kickoff time prior to 1 p.m. in the time zone of their home stadium.
