B. Defense
Off-sides = 5-yard penalty
Defensive Holding = 5-yard penalty
Defensive Pass Interference will be a spot foul (1st down at the spot)
If Defensive Pass Interference occurs in the end zone, it will result in
a 1st down at the 1-yard line.
Any dead ball penalty on the defense AFTER a change of possession
would result in a loss of down for that team’s offense when they begin
their ensuing possession.
Responsibility to avoid contact is with the defense. The defense is
allowed an INITIAL disruption, and then must cover. Excessive or
prolonged contact will result in a “tack on” penalty at the end of the play (5-yard penalty).

Receiver/Ball carrier is legally down when touched below the neck with one or both hands. (Excessive force by shoving, pushing, or striking a blow will be penalized by automatic first down and 5 yards. Player can be expelled if ruled unsportsmanlike & flagrant).
Fumbles that hit the ground are dead balls at the spot with the last team retaining possession. A muffed snap is not a fumble/dead ball. The 4.0 second count remains in effect on snaps.
The QB is allowed 4.0 seconds to throw the ball. Time starts on the snap of the ball and stops as soon as the QB releases the ball. If release is under 4.0 seconds, the play continues. Play is blown dead after 4.0 seconds.
Interceptions may not be returned – 3 points are awarded on interception. Points for defensive stop and interception are not “added together”. One or the other ends a possession with defensive points. The offense must gain at least 15 yards in the first 3 or less plays or the defense takes over. No 4th downs. (3) downs in all zones.
