Raiders quarterback Derek Carr almost got into the end zone for a game-winning touchdown at the end of last Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, but he lost the ball from his left hand as he stretched it out when he got close to the pylon. The ball went out of the end zone, which meant it was Dallas’ ball and they ran out the clock on a 20-17 win. The rule governing fumbles that go out of the end zone has plenty of detractors, but knowing the rule and the situation led many to wonder if Carr should have taken a more cautious approach on the crucial play. Carr is not second-guessing himself, however.
