Why are there so many penalties for offensive players emerging in the NFL lately, and why do they all seem to come at the most important times?

last nightJason Kelce’s false start cost the Philadelphia Eagles the game against the Seattle Seahawks.

on saturdayDenver Broncos offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz was offside on a fourth-and-goal play in the third quarter that negated the touchdown.

And let’s not forget last week, when Kadarius Toni was offside It cost the Kansas City Chiefs the game against the Buffalo Bills.

“I think almost everyone acknowledged that the officials are absolutely right,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said He said On December 13. “That’s their job to call it wrong… I think that shows you how hard they do their job.”

Kelsey said Who was previously warned about moving the ball forward Years on multiple occasions, but he still manages to get away with it.

Back in October, Pro Football Talk wrote:

“Kelce said that in the future he plans to explain to officials that he lines up his offhand on the ground for a quarterback offside because it helps him get down, and that they should not assume that if they see a wrong hand in the neutral zone it is a penalty.”

Last season he was there 284 Offside Offside Calls via league. So far there is only 224 this season, but the trend of these calls in the past few weeks may raise that number. These calls are rare, but it can’t be a coincidence that there are two within two weeks of each other, right?

Others believe there should be rule changes, like Peyton Manning.

“I think they should change that rule,” Manning said L said ESPN Sorry for the interruption After Tony’s sneak call. “If they were going to call that, just blow that play so we wouldn’t see what would have happened.”
