Why not? Why can't you let the offense run a play and attempt to get yards and then give them the 5 yards if it fails, but not let the offense run a play and keep the clock in their favor?
It's like your willing to concede yardage, b/c the defense was at fault. But not time on the clock. That doesn't make sense to me.
