Will this count as a forced fumble???

Postby mattb47 » Mon Dec 12, 2005 12:14 am

One of my IDPs, Vilma, forced J. Porter to fumble on the 1 yard line, but Porter recovered the ball in the endzone. Should this count for my IDP as a forced fumble? I was pretty sure that it had counted it before as one when the offensive team recovers a fumble, but I'm not sure about this one because NFL.com didn't have him listed as having a forced fumble.

This is very important because in my first round playoff game I am down 100.13 to 100.35 and this would count as 2 points and give me the win. I have a good chance of winning anyway with De. Williams for Atlanta playing tomorrow but I was just wondering what people thought about this.

I would think that a forced fumble is a forced fumble...why they didn't have it that way on NFL.com is odd. I guess that TD messed things up. :-S

Matt: ESPN.com has Vilma down for a forced fumble:

Don't know why NFL.com doesn't have it.

Good luck!
