I don't think the O-lineman jumped late enough to call it a plain false start.
That's where we disagree, as I think the defender got back well before the Offensive Lineman jumped.
Anyway, the penalty was encroachment on the 2nd defender who jumped AFTER the O-lineman jumped. You could argue that the 2nd defender only jumped as a reaction to the o-lineman jumping, thus making it false start.
But it's a moot point now.
Also, VERY happy about that Kickoff return TD. At least my fantasy team has a shot this week...
