In football, a first down is when the football is moved forward at least 10 yards since the last first down was called. It is the first set of four attempts to begin the cycle again. As with any large goal (a touchdown), it is important to break it down into immediately acievable goals. It is very difficult for any one player to win a game alone, but they can push to get a first down every time they touch the ball. You wouldn't want tto throw a "Hail Mary" every play because the odds are against you being able to score that way.

A fumble is down when the recovering player is down or when the ball goes out of bounds...so yes, if the ball is fumbled forward and recovered by the offense, or goes out of bounds, past the first down marker, it is a first down. The exception is on fourth down. In the NFL, only the player who fumbled the ball can advance it on fourth down.

2nd down =]
If the offense recovers the fumble and advances it beyond the original first down line, yes, it is a first down. If the ball is not advanced past the original first down line then the next play is the down after the one that the fumble occurred on. For example, if a running back fumbles the ball on second down and an offensive line man recovers the fumble but does not advance the ball beyond the original first down line, it is then third down. If the defense recovers the fumble, then it is an automatic first down wherever the player that recovered the fumble is downed.
