NFL rules question

Post by 19delta on Sun Nov 12, 2017 3:44 pm

The Bears lost the ball on a fumble that went out of the endzone.

What is the justification for this rule? Why does the offense lose possession?

Yes, I think so.

I'm just wondering why it is.

Not only that, but the original call was that the ball carrier was ruled out of bounds on like the 5 yd line and the Bears were challenging that call.  Instead, it was clear that the runner DRAGGED HIS LEFT FOOT OB at the 2 BEFORE he lost control of the ball.  The result is that the refs called the touchback.  I think the Bears got screwed big time.  The Bears were challenging whether or not the player stepped out.  He did.  How do the refs get to review a part of the play that not only wasn't being challenged but was OVER once the ball carrier stepped out?
