Yeah it's turning into arena ball. One thing they could do to help the defense if they start calling knee hits penalties is call more offensive pi, more push offs, hands to the face or face mask like when trying to stiff arm. If defense does it it gets called but offense when stiff arming hardly ever gets called even if grabbing the face mask and pulling some times. And the refs can help by being cautious with the flags. I guess nfl says if its close throw it but I say if it's close or unsure don't throw it.
Here is an example of one today that got flagged: keep watching reply easier to see.
