This speaks to me to how bad the officiating has gotten in the NFL. If there is contact & the defender prematurely interferes with the receivers ability to catch the ball, it's a penalty.
If there is no contact before the ball gets to the receiver, it's not a penalty & shouldn't be called.
Too many times, I'm seeing the ref throw the flag when there is no contact, or when the contact is well timed.
