  1. First and 10 @ A’s 40 YL. QB sets up to throw a pass. Defender B1grabs and twists the QB’s face­ mask. QB breaks free from that face mask, runs a few yards and then throws a forward pass which is caught by A 80 at B’s 40 YL. Do we have a roughing the passer penalty that would move the ball to B’s 25 or would we have a 15 yard face mask foul from the previous spot?

  2. A 85, in the end zone and near the end line, jumps high to catch a pass. A 85, after catching the pass, while in the air, is contacted by B 25 so that he comes down out of bounds. Had he not been contacted, he would have come down in the end­zone.

  3. 2nd and 10 @ A’s 30 YL. A1 takes the snap and throws a legal forward pass downfield where B1 intercepts. While the pass was in the air, A7 commits OPI on A’s 44 YL. B1 returns the interception 15 yards then fumbles at A’s 20 YL and A 8 recovers the ball at A’s 15 YL.

  4. After a down a B lineman (on the LOS) asks the U to watch an A lineman (on the LOS) that is blocking below the waist, in the free blocking zone, as the QB is in the shot gun position. The U tells the A lineman that he can’t block below the waist from a 2 point stance since his QB is in the shot gun.

  5. Third and 10 @ B’s 40 YL. A1 gains 10 yards and is downed on B’s 30. A2 taunts B1 during the run.

  6. After A1 scores a touchdown, he is struck by B1. The A HC then insults a game official before the penalty for the personal foul by B1 is administered.

  7. R1 is running near a sideline as he attempts to catch a free kick in flight. R1 has one foot on the sideline, when he reaches through the plane of the sideline. The ball bounces off his hands and lands out of bounds.
