actually a offensive tackle are not really supposed to run the football not unless they recover a fumble
Any fumble, whether forward or backwards, is a live ball. The offense can recover the fumble, with certain stipulations: If the play is a fourth down, OR if play is within the last two minutes of either half, only the player who fumbled the ball can legally recover for the offense. A forward pass that hits the ground before a player gains possession is a dead ball and the play stops. A backward pass that hits the ground before a player gains possession is a live ball or considered a fumble and the recovering team will gain possession of the ball.
tackle the QB extra hard to make a fumble thin grab it and run 4 a td
No, such a scenario would result in a safety. However, if you fumble the ball in your own end zone, and the opposing team recovers it, that would yield a touchdown.
No, it is an interception and a defensive touchdown.
Yes, they could. There are two ways an NFL defense can score touchdowns. One way is to intercept a pass and run it back into the endzone. The other way is by recovering an opposing teams fumble and running it into the endzone.
Yes the punt receiver can recover a muffed kick (fumbled kick) after signalling for a fair catch. He just can not run with the ball once it is picked up.
On any down, if the offense recovers their own fumble, they can advance it as far as they can until tackled, or run out of bounds.
Baseball is to football
No, but in college the offense could still run the ball in for two points. In high school or NFL football, the try is dead the moment the defense recovers the ball.
