For example, Team A is flagged for an illegal procedure prior to the snap.  The play continues, and Team B is flagged for a face mask penalty. 

What is the ruling?

By illegal procedure, I would assume tou mean illegal formation, shift, or motion. These become fouls at the snap, which makes them live ball fouls. With the facemask being against B and the original flag against A, you will have offsetting penalties.

Illegal shift is likely the call on the offense as having a guy moving early would be a whistle before the snap, or if it is snapped, the play is whistled dead. Live ball penalty on both teams results in offsetting penalties, replay the down.

Yes, they are a flex bone team and had both halfbacks in motion at the same time. 

 

Thanks for the clarification.
