The 3rd down where carolina fumbled, it was recovered by denver, and then they fumbled and we recovered. Then we punted on 4th down. Correct me if I am wrong, but isnt that a change of posession and should have given Carolina a 1st down? What is the NFL rule on this?

it's one consecutive play.

until that whistle is blown, it can change possession several times...but it is still carolina's responsibiltiy to get it beyond their designated first down marker.

Only if they advance the ball.

What do you expect from a staff that didnt notice that Denvers PR dropped the ball before he crossed the goal line.

Yeah, idk how the hell, that poo wasn't reviewed. Should've been a touchback.

Regardless of any other bad calls their is no doubt that this situation was handled correctly. They didn't get the first down even after regaining the ball. What do you expect to happen?
