ARLINGTON, Texas -- The mammoth video boards at Cowboys Stadium are drawing attention again.

Guinness World Records officials will be at the stadium on Monday night to certify the screens as the largest in the world.

The boards stretch 60 yards wide and are 24 yards high, one facing each sideline. They are hung 90 feet above the field -- a big issue ever since they were hit by a punt during the first preseason game at the stadium.

NFL officials have reviewed their policy of how to handle balls conking the boards during a game and are likely to revise their 85-foot-high rule during the offseason.
