This is a good question. Unfortunately, there is no good answer other than that's the way the rule was written. Presumably, if a defense is good enough to cause a fumble in the endzone, they are rewarded. However, it doesn't make much sense, as anywhere else on the field, a fumble out of bounds is retained by the team with the ball in the first place. I personally think it's a dumb rule, but that's the way the rule was drafted.
that would be called a touchdown
It is a fumble when the ball is bobbled and a touchback when it goes out of the endzone. It is placed on the twenty yard line.
it is a touchback
Touchdown on a kickoff.... Touchback on a punt
Safety and Touchback are not "positions", they are the results of a play, and they do have opposite definitions at this time. A Safety is scored when the offense is tackled in the endzone and awards the defense two points, and the ball. A touchback is declared when the defense takes possesion of the ball (by interception, fumble recovery, punt, or kickoff) in their own endzone and elects not to try to return the ball upfield. A touchback awards the ball to the receiving team at their own 20 yard line. Own in football describes the side of the field the team is defending. You score points in the opponents endzone.
It's a touchdown.
if the returner catches the ball i the endzone and he doesnt come out then it is a touchback and they get the ball at the 20 yd line. if he comes out of the endzone or runs into the endzone and gets tackled it is a safety
If you put the ball into your own endzone by backward pass or by carrying it there if the ball becomes dead in the endzone it is either a safety if you have possession at the end of the play or a touchdown if the oponent has possession at the end of the play. A ball that goes out of bounds is in possession of the last team to have possession in bounds so a ball going out of bounds in that case is a safety. Likewise a ball fumbled that goes out of bounds behind the goal line is a touchback because the team put the ball in the oponents endzone. If you put the ball in the oponents endzone it is either a touchback if he has possession or a touchdown if you have possession in the end zone at the end of the play. A kick remains a kick until it is possessed or is dead. That is why a ball touched by the receivers that then goes in the endzone where it is downed by the receivers is a touchback. It was the kick that put the ball in the opponents endzone.
A touchback is usually seen in football when either at the begining of a game, after the half, or after a team scores a team kicks the ball off to the other team.Touchback:If the kickoff or punt leads to the ball going out of bounds in the end zone or stopping within the endzone then the receiving team gets the ball at the 20 yard line.A touchback can also occur on a interception or fumble recovery in the end zone.
Neither, it is spotted at where his forward progress is stopped. And an offensive player could not fumble a ball in the endzone because then it would be a TD and the play is dead.
If the ball is punted and lands in the endzone then tipped back by the kicking team, it is ruled a touchback.
