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.
If that's the case, then I might have to change my stance. They called it on Barwin, so I'll have to review it later. So if he made contact after the O-lineman moved, it would then be a false start. I originally saw it as a neutral zone infraction causing the false start that they just mislabeled, which refs can do from time to time.
