Wouldn't they have to recover a fumble in the end zone they're defending to make it 109 yds? In which case a bronco player would have had to fumble the ball in the end zone he's trying to score in which means he would've possessed the ball already in the end zone making it a touchdown for Denver isn't that correct? That makes no sense to me unless the Denver player didn't maintain clear possession of the ball while in the end zone and going to the ground in the end zone thus making it a live ball. Is that what happened?
Denver RB lost the ball right before crossing the plane. Seattle LB put a helmet on it, ball flew forward into the endzone.
Okay I understand now. But if the Denver player had tackled that Seattle defender in the end zone it would've been a safety for Denver. But I see the ball flew forward to the back of the end zone, making it the longest touchdown distance possible on the fumble return. It's a good play by the Seattle defender to cause the fumble before the bronco player crosses the goal line but you sure have to have some kind of damn lucky bounce to recover that fumble clear in the back of the end zone and make that kind of play resulting in a touchdown.
