If that's incomplete, wouldn't it be intentional grounding? Who is he throwing it to? In the pocket and ball doesn't make it back to the line of scrimmage. I mean obviously it's a fumble but it's either/or.

A backwards pass is a live ball. Period.

Total fumble even Stafford new it. The QB would have tried to catch it after loosing it.

It's either a fumble or a backwards pass. Either way,

Ah good point I didn't think about that. Even if it was a pass it was a backwards pass

It's a silly rule. Any backwards or lateral pass is a live ball before and after it hits the ground. Tuck or no tuck.

How did they catch a break? The Refs blew yet another call, the NY NFL refs knew it was a fumble, as did everyone else, except the idiot Refs officiating this game.

So what do you call with your back up QB, back up RB, with your WR's getting mugged?
