When someone sacks the quarterback do you count the negative yardage from where he was sacked or where the other team recovers the ball?

its where the qb is sacked but if he fumbles it its where the line of scrimage is If there is no fumble, hence no turnover, then the negative yardage is where the quarterback is officially tackled. On a fumble and turnover and downed recovery by the other team, I believe that the negative yardage would then be calculated from the line of scrimmage to where the opponent recovers.
