tackle / tŠk ə l / verb

2 [ intransitive and transitive ]
a) to try to take the ball away from an opponent in a game such as football or hockey
b) to force someone to the ground so that they stop running, in a game such as American football or rugby

fumble / fʌmb ə l / verb

3 [ intransitive and transitive ] to drop a ball after catching it :
Quarterback Rattay was hit and fumbled the ball.

You see. You can't fumble a player unless he/she is a ball!!;) you tackle a player (your opponent)
