SERIOUSLY THE ONLY OBJECT OF THE GAME
The team in possession of the ball (Offense) is trying to run or pass with the ball to get across the opposing teams goal line OR trying to kick the ball through the goal post. The other team (Defense) is trying to prevent them from doing so.
The team with the most points WINS THE GAME.
Think of the football field like a GIANT game board. The100 yards of playing space is split into 2 sides. The big numbers are in stretches of 10 yards with a line across for every 5 yards. The smaller lines are marked for every yard. The purpose of all the lines are to measure the advancement of the ball.
The end of each field is called the END ZONE.
The team with the possession of the ball has to move the ball at least 10 yards to earn the right to continue to advance up the field. Each try is called a down. If you don't move the ball at least 10 yards by the 3rd try, the team has to decide whether to go for remaining yards OR punt the ball to the opposing team. It you don't make it, the other team takes over at that exact spot.
There are ONLY 5 ways to score points!
3 Most Common Ways to Score:
If you cross over the opposing teams End Zone with the ball,
it's a TOUCHDOWN = 6 POINTS
Immediately after a touchdown, you can kick the ball through
the goal post for an EXTRA POINT = 1 POINT
If you can't get into the end zone, you can attempt to kick the
ball through the goal posts from the spot of the ball.
This is a FIELD GOAL = 3 POINTS
2 Least Common Ways to Score:
If you need extra points instead of the extra point kick,
you can try for a TWO POINT CONVERSION = 2 POINTS
And finally, the rare SAFETY is when you tackle your opponent
in their own End Zone = 2 POINTS
