This is total B.S. Yahoo is not
going to credit the Seahawks defense with the TD. I e-mailed them about the matter and here is their reply, in relevant part:
I appreciate your inquiry with regards to the fumble recovery return TD by Seattle.
This play is recorded as an offensive fumble return TD as Seattle had possession of the football, fumbled, recovered the football and scored a TD. Therefore, the Seattle DEF is not credited with a TD on the play.
Here is the play-by-play description:
Frank Gore rushed up the middle for 5 yard loss. Frank Gore fumbled. Marcus Trufant recovered fumble and returned for 4 yards. Marcus Trufant fumbled. Craig Terrill recovered fumble and returned for 10 yards (Olindo Mare made PAT)
Therefore, Craig Terrill is credited with an offensive fumble return TD in leagues that use the stat category. Seattle DEF is not credited with a TD.
That doesn't make any sense. San Francisco had the ball. Seattle's defense recovered a fumble. Then they temporarily lost it, but got it back and took it in for the score. It makes no sense to consider that an offensive TD. Seattle was playing defense
on that play, Craig Terrill is a defensive
tackle, meaning that he plays on defense
. Besides, if it wasn't a defensive TD, it must have been an offensive one, but Terrill is not credited
with 10 rushing yards and a rushing TD!
This really makes no sense to me. Fortunately, Antonio Romo lit it up last night so I got way more than the 4 points I needed to win. But still, this is B.S.!
