However, the ref standing right there didn't see the ball pop out, thought CJ still had it & blew the play dead, thus nullifying the Ninja endzone dance.

I'm not seeing JJ making contact with the ball. I think he hit CJ so hard that the ball just popped out of his hand, which would explain why the ball goes forward downfield, rather than backwards. His right arm wraps up like a normal tackle and may have made contact with CJ's arm that's carrying the ball, but in any case I think the force of the hit on the body is what caused the fumble.
