It could be something that came from your downspout. It could be that those spots in your lawn were extremely wet. It is impossible to diagnose the problem from that photo alone. I suggest you bring a sample of the turf (at the border of the dead and live grass) to your county extension office and they will send it to the Diagnostic Clinic.
