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.

Which, in my opinion, would have been the best. One more chance at it, not four.

Yeah, I would have been okay with this as well.

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.

Correct. Offsetting penalties, replay the down.

Yep. This is true even if the offsetting penalty occurs after the foul. For example, DeSean Jackson caught a 30 yard pass while drawing a redundant pass interference call. He then proceeded to throw the ball at a Giants coach and got hit with an unsportsmanlike causing the Eagles to replay the down and erasing the entire gain.
