    I would imagine the TV clock is synced up pretty damn close if not spot on.

    That would only work for the first 10 second run off since the clock stops on a penalty with 5 minutes left to go in the 4th quarter (or 2 minutes in the first half) and then doesn't start again until the ball is snapped. If the clock is already stopped, there is no 10 second run off.

    Also, since this rule only applies if the clock is running, why wouldn't the offense just let the clock run down to 5 seconds and spike the ball to stop the clock before kicking the field goal?
