I watch football occasionally, and I thought I knew the rules well enough. But I saw two things in yesterdays Browns vs. Ravens game that got me puzzled. One was a fumble during an extra-point kick. The Ravens had just scored a touchdown, making the score 6-0. In receiving the football, the guy who holds the ball for the kicker (does he have a title, by the way), dropped the ball and fumbled it. The Ravens recovered. Does this just count as a missed kick, or are there other consequences? If the defense had recovered, could they have run with the ball?
