1st and 10, Holding, 10 yard penalty, 1st and 11??

Post by TheFoxInDetox » Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:36 am

Am I the only one that noticed that? (Maybe it was discussed in the game thread but I'm not going to search 16 pages of posts to find out)

I believe it was in the third quarter, I can't say for sure off the top of my head though. Maybe on the holding penalty called on Diggs? Anyway, it was Vikings ball, 1st and 10 near midfield I think. Snap, 11 yard gain, flag, holding on the offense, 10 yard penalty. Should now be 1st and 20 as usual. There were no offsetting penalties or other extenuating circumstance that I could see yet, the next play the Vikings line up and it's 1st and 11? What am I missing here??

If the holding occurs down field, it is 10 yards from the spot of the foul. So if it was 9 yards down fuels, that will happen.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

If it is past the line of scrimmage.
