How to Get Stat Error/Discrepancy Corrected?

Hi,

 

Hoping someone can help me with this.

 

In reviewing my fantasy football score for this past week, I have found a scoring error and discrepancy. The Chicago Bears defense was credited with 5 tackles for losses in their win against the packers, however, I believe this number should be 6. ESPN Stats correctly has this written as 6 tackles for losses for the Bears. The NFL.com page has them down for only 5 but when looking through the play by play, I see 6 of them which are as follows:
1. -6 yard sack by K. Mack in 1st quarter
2. -8 yard sack split by B.Nichols and K.Mack in 1st quarter (this is the one which was not counted, maybe because it was split...)
3. -4 yard run, tackle by Lynch, second quarter
4. -2 yard sack by Floyd, 4th quarter
5. -5 yard sack by Mack, 4th quarter
6. -18 yard sack by Floyd, 4th quarter

 

I am not sure who to contact regarding this issue and how to get it changed. This is very important because it would change the result of my game and put me into the championship.

 

Thank you very much for your input.

As you suspected, a Tackle for Loss is not counted when mutliple players contribue to the tackle.  It has to be an individual player, and the NFL shows these TFLs: Leonard Floyd 2, Khalil Mack 2, Aaron Lynch 1

Yahoo will match what the NFL reports.  If the NFL says 5 TFLs, Yahoo will score 5 TFLs.

Is this how it is officially scored though or just on Yahoo? Because on ESPN it shows the .5 tackles for loss for two players with a total of 6 tackles for loss for the Bears.

I would understand them not counting the .5 for the individual players, but overall it should be counted as a team tackle for a loss...

To be honest, I'm not quite sure.  It would make sense for the TFL from the individual players to match the defense as a whole.  It might be how the NFL scores it because the stats from that game on their website shows 5 TFL for the Bears.

How do you get a hold of the NFL to change it? Not counting a team tackle for a loss because two players contributed to the tackle makes very little sense to me.
