But that is not the way infractions are called in the NFL. Just beacues both players are fouling, that does not mean the infractions cancel each other out.
And even if it were, offsetting penalties would result in replaying the down. Rather than 1st and goal from the 1, it would be 4th down again.
No matter what, defensive holding is an automatic fresh set of downs.
I could be mistaken, but if defensive holding is called on the same live ball as offensive holding, the penalties offset and the down is replayed. This is regardless of the fact that DH is 5 yards and fresh downs.
