      From NESN's Jeff Howe:

      Some clarity on the new replay rule: All scoring plays will be
      reviewed by the replay official, who must confirm the score. If he
      cannot confirm the score, the referee will go to the replay. The
      referee cannot spot the ball -- for a kickoff or PAT -- until he
      receives confirmation of the score from the replay official. Also,
      coaches are not allowed to challenge a scoring play. It is
      entirely up to the officials.

      My guess is that for the vast majority of scores it will be blindingly
      obvious to the the replay official in the booth that it was a score
      and he'll pretty immediately signal confirmation to the ref (probably
      while the players are still celebrating).
