The preseason is over; 271 penalties for illegal contact

The NFL has changed, and this rule has benefited the offense more than anyone. It keeps plays alive, and the stats prove interesting.

@SeifertESPN: Per @ESPNStatsInfo, #NFL preseason ended w/ 271 calls for illegal contact or defensive holding. 17-week total in 2013 regular season: 285.

That is a lot of penalties, what do you think?

Overall, there were 1,387 penalties called in #NFL preseason, per @ESPNStatsInfo. Increase of 36 pct. over 2013 preseason.
