A Record Number of Penalties set in the First Three Weeks Of the NFL Season
The NFL season is only three weeks old, but it's turning out to be penalty marred.Seven hundred and thirty accepted penalties in just three weeks of play. That must be a record. It is. The previous record of 716 dates back to 2005.
There were 298 accepted penalties in week 2. That's the single week record. Have you noticed more yellow than usual? Does it irritate you? Only if it goes against your team, perhaps at a crucial moment.
