Can someone point me to what counts as a sack and what doesn't and the rationale for why? I'm specifically wondering why..

1.) Ryan Lindley fumbles the ball and falls on it but doesn't try to get back up. No sack.
2.) Jake Locker runs out of bounds for a 2 yard loss (he could have thrown it away easily), it counts as a sack.

Seems to me that the first should be a sack and the second should be a 2 yard loss running play, not the first being a 10 yard loss running play and second being a sack.

And while we're at it, why is it the QB's fault if a RB can't handle a perfect hand-off? Foles got credit for the fumble instead of Brown in the Thursday night game. I understand why the QB is at fault in many situations, but in that situation it was a perfect handoff...
