And, yes, kudos to Deguara for on-field awareness.

I agree... That play happened right in front of where I was sitting and my first thought was that Ridder had a forward arm motion, meaning "Incomplete Pass." OK, I get that the officials didn't agree, no whistle blew, and the "bean bag" was thrown meaning "Fumble." So then Degaura picks up the ball..."Fumble recovered." At the 2. Fine. But then he takes the ball into the endzoneā€¦ I thought the rule was "A fumble cannot be advanced." So, I was like "Down at the 2."

The play ended up being an old "Fumble-rooskie" type play, where the ball is "fumbled forward," picked up off the turf, and advanced downfield.

Not that I'm complaining, but that whole sequence left me scratching my head.

Though the screen at Marshall is small, it seemed clear to me that Ridder's arm was moving forward when it was knocked loose and that any replay would confirm the forward motion.

I thought so initially but the ball was knocked loose before his arm went forward. Broadcast did a good job highlighting it.

Yep. Some want to point at the ball moving forward as proof of a pass, but he was hit on the elbow which dislodged the ball and forced his hand forward, along with the ball.
Remember the empty hand rule?
