because I must be stupid. When Andre Davis fumbles the ball out of the end zone, what exactly is the reasoning behind the rule that awards the ball to the defense? If he fumbled out of bounds anywhere else on the field, wouldn't the ball still belong to us at the point where it went out of bounds? I'm not suggesting we should've been awarded the ball in the end zone (duh), but I don't quite understand why Jax got the ball. I'm not questioning the existence of the rule, merely the reasoning behind it.
