flags so far this year are up about 1 per game from last season and 2 from a decade ago. pretty easy to guess where that extra flag is coming from.

illegal contact penalties have TRIPLED this year

its a complete joke what they give the offense in this league

Illegal contact penalties in the NFL have tripled this season compared to the same period last year, a largely unnoticed factor among those fueling a record-setting start for offenses.

There have been 24 such flags thrown this season, compared to eight in Weeks 1-4 of 2017. Officials penalized teams only 38 times for illegal contact during the entirety of the 2017 season, prompting league officials to make it a point of emphasis for 2018.

Both narratives are fake.

18: There was an average of 0.5 Illegal Contact penalties per team league wide.
17: There was an average of 1 Illegal Contact penalties per team league wide.

This is per team, not per team per game. You're comparing 4 weeks to a whole season. That site doesn't count offsetting or declined penalties, which I'm guessing is the difference between the 16 and 24 count for this season.

This is because the number of illegal contact penalties at the beginning of the 2017 season was unusually low, not because this year is unusually high. The number in 2018 is lower than in 2016 and way lower than in 2014 or 2015.

promoting offense in the nfl is not a narrative....its a real thing

the move towards offense has been going on for many years

the point is it got to low last year so they had to artificially inflate it back up this year cause all they care about is offense

pathetic
