The only thing that can be contested here is if DAlexander got possession of the ball.
It does for the people saying that the rules for gaining possession are different in the end zone.

It comes down to what sent him to the ground since his lunge was his football move.

I guess they could have said that the contact isnt what sent him to the ground and that he did it under his own power. If so, then play is over when the ball crosses.

It was a back shoulder pass while Carter was draped on him.

Alexander's momentum brought him into the endzone.

At 34sec (best angle), I think there is a case to be made that Carter is contacting him and aiding him in going to the ground. I think we are in agreement on everything else. If that is contact, we agree about the rule (I think)
