What is the longest penalty given in NFL game ie 15 yards?

The longest penalty in an NFL game is undefined. A defensive pass interference penalty is assessed from the line of scrimmage to the spot of the foul. If the spot of the foul is 30 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, the penalty is 30 yards. If the spot of the foul is 18 yards past the line of scrimmage, the penalty is 18 yards. If the spot of the foul is 9 yards past the line of scrimmage, the penalty is 9 yards. A defensive pass interference penalty is the only penalty that can be longer than 15 yards.

When did the college football pass interference rule become a 15 yard penalty?

Defense Pass Interference (DPI) has not changed recently in the NCAA rules. It has "always" been a spot of the foul penalty, but not to exceed 15 yards from the line of scrimmage. So, if the infraction occurs 8 yards downfield it is an 8 yard penalty. If it occurs 52 yards downfield it is a 15 yard penalty.


What is pass interference in football?

In general, interference is a deliberate act, with contact, to impede a receiver from catching a pass...or an act by a receiver to prevent defensing a pass (offensive pass interference). It is most often hitting or grabbing the receiver before the pass arrives, or a receiver shoving a defender away. If the pass has not been thrown when a defensive penalty occurs, the lesser penalty of illegal contact will apply instead. The rules are different in each level of play (high school, NCAA, NFL), as are the penalties applied.
