Best Answer

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.

Redskins beat what team with an extra kick after penalty?

Dallas Cowboys in 2006 Dallas Cowboys in 2006. Dallas lined up to kick the game winning FG with :07 seconds to play. The Redskins blocked the kick, and Sean Taylor picked it up and returned it 38 yards before being brought down by an illegal hit. Since no game can end on a defensive penalty, the Redskins were awarded an additional 15 yards due to the penalty, and given an attempt to kick the game winning field goal. Nick Novak connected on the 29 yard FG, and the Redskins won the game.
