    Ok Brett throws to Jennings for 12 yards- Jenning laterals to Driver.... Donald goes for 30 more yards.

    Now..... Does Brett get credit for a 42 yard pass or a 12 yard pass? I think they gave Brett credit for just a 12 yard pass.

    Should not Driver get credit for 30 rushing yards? They did not give him credit in the offical stats for the 30 yards in rushing or recieving stats?

    I know someone here can explain that to me.... Cuase I have no figgin idea?

    A humble, RP

    I think it is considered a fumble.

    Ya I think it's all like a pass. I know if DD scores it goes as a throwing TD for Brett

    I think he should get credit but I'm no genius.

    Jennings gets a fumble and Driver gets a 30 yard fumble recovery. Kind of a silly rule, but that's the way it is.

    The same thing happened in Philly today, only Buckholder scored and he is being credited with a 20 yd fumble recovery for a TD on fox score site, so it looks like any yardage by Driver is considered yardage after a fumble.

    No fumbles listed on nfl.com or the site RP provided...no rushing stats for Driver either do must be passinng stat and recieving stat

    This is how it is listed on play by play on nfl.com

    6:23) (Shotgun) B.Favre pass to G.Jennings to MIN 45 for 12 yards. Lateral to D.Driver to MIN 15 for 30 yards (C.Griffin). g yards for Brett and passing rec for DD and Jennings


    But it does seem odd...sohuld be a pass to jennings then rushing stats for driver.
