Best Answer

Offensive pass interference is an illegal act (shoving, tripping) by a pass receiver against a defensive player. Typically it is used to create space between the receiver and the defender.

A related penalty can occur on a "pick" play where an offensive player blocks a defender who is covering a pass receiver. If the offensive player contacts the defensive player, it is likely to be called. If the offensive player merely blocks the defender's path, it is unlikely to be called.

What is an interferance in football?

There are two types of interference in football. Defensive pass interference is when a defender covering a receiver touches and prevents a receiver from catching a ball which he could have caught. Offensive pass interference is when an offensive player prevents a defensive player from intercepting the ball by touching or pushing him in any type of way to get him away from the football.

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.

In the NFL what occurs when there is a defensive pass interference?

Automatic First DownThere shall be no interference with a forward pass thrown from behind the line, is one rule about interference. Defensive pass interference is called when a defensive player interferes with a receiver's attempt to catch the ball. If the defender makes contact with the receiver, it is pass interference, unless the contact is incidental, or done in order to make a play on the ball. For example the defensive player can knock the ball down, even if he has to contact the receiver to do it. But he cannot push the receiver, trip him, grab his arm, pull his shirt, etc. Typically referees will call pass interference if the defensive player makes contact with the receiver but is not looking back at the ball.When defensive pass interference is called, the offense receives an automatic first down, and the ball is placed where the interference occurred. If the interference occurs in the end zone, the ball is placed on the one yard line. Pass interference cannot be challenged once called.
