For the season, the Ravens have 10 false starts, nine holding penalties, six unnecessary roughness flags and five facemask calls. Osemele leads the team with five penalties, including one that was declined.
Yanda has three penalties for the season, with cornerback Jimmy Smith leading the defense with four. Yanda was also flagged for illegal hands to the face in the second quarter. That's an increased point of emphasis for NFL officials this season.
"They're just discipline, keying in on the cadence, making sure that everybody is on the same page, communication," Yanda said when asked what can be done about all the penalties. "Those hands to the face ones, I got one, those are tough just because you shoot your hands and the refs are making more of an emphasis of that.
"You shoot your hands and they accidentally catch his mask, and they're just throwing the flag. It's tough for us. They're coming at you 100 miles per hour and you throw your hands, and I got my hand off late. It's just tough."
