Baltimore fumble recovery a special teams/defense score?

I need to hear from a commissioner please!
Was that run by the ravens fullback after the fumble recovery considered a defense/special teams score or how are you scoring it?

Yahoo has scored Baltimore D yesterday as 1 sack, 3 interceptions and 1 special teams TD.

Oops was looking at the wrong stat line. According to Yahoo, it counts as a "return TD", so if you don't get kickoff return TD's, it doesn't count for Baltimore. It doesn't count as a regular DEF TD, which would be an INT or fumble recovery by the DEFENSE for a TD.

Any more on this, Im in a CBS sportsline league where you do get points for special teams TD's. Originally I was credited with the TD, now overnight as usual the scoring has been completely recalculated taking away 6 points for the touchdown. Thats B.S. because if a punt returner fumbles a return the defense loses points so they should get points for a TD on an offensive recovery. Anyone know where the authority on this lies, NFL.com stats I would suppose?
The only thing we have to fear is.... another injured Denver RB!!!!!!!!

Because it's not a special teams TD if the RB fumbles it and a WR recovers and takes it into the endzone. A punt returner fumbling it would be different because FGs, punts and kicks are special teams situations, and this wasn't a special teams play, so its not a special teams TD.
