It should result in a demotion of that crew and that official to the bottom of the NFL ref pile with a possible loss of job when another ref gains the necessary experience to take over his position.
It is unacceptable for an official to hold the game in favour of the defensive side when it was an offensive timeout called. This is not pee wee football.
I know when substitutions are made on offense, the refs hold the ball some for the defense to do the same.
Not sure how that works when kicking is involved.
