Can someone explain why Drew Brees lost points in week 15 for touchback

Hello,

Can someone help me understand why the fumble by Tommylee Lewis near the goal line which turned into a touchback caused Drew Brees to lose 2 points?   I was relying on Drew to take me to the championship in our fantasy pool...I only needed him to get 9.5 points.  Even in his worst weeks, that would not have been a problem.  I know that it does not make a difference now but I am just curious.

Can someone please explain just to satisfy my curiosity...

He was initially given 2 points for throwing the pass on the 2 point conversion attempt. That was wrong of course.

Yahoo removed those 2 points later in the evening.

You're sure it was on that play?  I see 203 passing, 1 INT and -2 rushing.

Just to be clear, Brees was not charged with an INT on the 2 point conversion.

@Akolwzan  Interceptions are not awarded on 2-point conversion attempts.  The NFL scores it as a failed conversion.   It was initially added by Yahoo by mistake but later that night.  The NFL scored it as the following:

(12:18) A.Kamara right tackle for 16 yards, TOUCHDOWN. TWO-POINT CONVERSION ATTEMPT. D.Brees pass to M.Thomas is incomplete. ATTEMPT FAILS. DEFENSIVE TWO-POINT ATTEMPT. D.Jackson intercepted the try attempt. ATTEMPT SUCCEEDS.

Thank you.  New to this fantasy thing and that game and those points would of taken me to the championship in our pool.  Appreciate your explanation.  Makes sense.

He threw 2 interceptions that game.  One bounced off his receivers helmet and was intercepted by Carolina and one during the 2 point conversion.  Tough luck on my part.  I was pretty confident that I would sail through to the finals only needing 9.5 points with Brees but it is not the first time I have been surprised or disappointed by this game.  Had a great time playing and it made the season much more exciting.
