What is the 'tuck rule'?

The tuck rule applies when a quarterback starts a throwing motion and then decides not to throw and attempts to 'tuck' the ball back into his body to keep possession. Should the quarterback lose control of the ball while in the tucking motion and the ball hits the ground, the play is considered an incomplete pass as opposed to a fumble.
The tuck rule is defined in Rule 3, Section 21, Article 2, Note 2 of the NFL Official Rules and is defined below:
"When a player is holding the ball to pass it forward, any intentional forward movement of his hand starts a forward pass, even if the player loses possession of the ball as he is attempting to tuck it back toward his body. Also, if the player has tucked the ball into his body and then loses possession, it is a fumble."
