Ravens Entire Offensive Line Flagged For False Start


From SB Nation, here is a YouTube video showing an innocuous play from last nights game between the Baltimore Ravens and visiting Washington Redskins. The Ravens were flagged for a false start, but when the referee announced the infraction, instead of naming the player who committed the penalty, he attributed it to the "entire offensive line."

It's not too often that the "entire offensive line" gets tagged with the responsibility for the penalty, but it looked like QB Joe Flacco called for the snap of the ball and everyone on the offensive line expected the ball to be snapped other than center Bryan Mattison, who hesitated before finally snapping the ball, causing the yellow flag to be thrown and the play blown dead by the referee.
