It seems that false starts are the most commonly called penalty in the NFL.
In Sunday’s matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts, the Titans were called for a false start. It was a pretty easy call to make, too.
As robotic as referees can be with their calls, this was a pretty fun call to hear in a game. The referee called it on, “everyone but the center.” Which, to be fair, is entirely accurate.
It’s also giving Mike Mularkey multiple guys to yell at on the sideline. Maybe he has to just let this one go.
