Cruz TD vs Calvin Johnson overturned TD

Can someone help me understand the difference between Cruz's TD and CJ's TD that was overturned?


Cruz TD

CJ TD

When Cruz caught that pass and went to the ground and the ball came loose, I immediately thought of Johnson. Also, for reference, Calvin Johnson had the same thing happen in 2010:

CJ TD 2010

The two catches from this year are remarkably similar. Both players reaching for end zone, as they hit the ground the ball comes loose. I'm not clear on how they could possibly be ruled differently. Either both are TDs or neither, unless I'm missing something (which is possible)
