This contest is fueled by the following news: American Football Rules: If the forward pass was not caught and the ball touches the ground; (play is resumed from the same line and the offensive team loses one attempt. In cases, when the ball is intercepted by a player of the defensive team, then the defensive teams becomes offensive & during the same scrambling, without any stops, the player, who possesses the ball, tries to run as close as possible to the end zone of the opponent team). One of the teams scores points; Registered penalties (only some of the fouls stop the downs and for the rest of fouls, players are punished immediately after the down). Points: Teams earns points in the following methods: Touchdown - 6 points. The touchdown is earned when the player with the ball runs into the end zone of the opponent or catches a pass, standing in the end zone of the opponent. The team, which earned a touchdown, can earn an extra one point by scoring a goal or earn an extra 2 points by making one more touchdown. In this case, the ball is placed at a 3-yard distance from end zone (according to the rules of college football) or 2 yards from the end zone (according to NFL). Goal - 3 points. A goal, scored during the down (not after touchdown), into the goalpost of the opponent (between the uprights and over the crossbar). Safety - 2 points. A safety is earned by the opposing team when the player of the attacking team is stopped along with the ball in his own end zone or a player of the attacking team runs out of the field along with the ball, when he is in his own end zone. A safety is also awarded to the opposing team when the attacking team makes a foul in its own end zone or the ball goes out of end zone of attacking team, which is called a "fumble". Once one team scores points, the team has to kick the ball onto the field from the 30yard mark (35 yards in college football). The exception in safety is that the possession of the ball is given to the team, which scored the safety by kicking the ball from the 20-yard line. The ball is hit with hands but not kicked along the ground, which is called a "free kick". Kicking the ball: Each half of the game begins from the time, when one of the teams kicks the ball with the foot towards the opponent's end zone from the 30-yard mark (from the 35 yard-mark in college football) , which is called the "kick off". The kick off is also done when one the teams scored points. In the case of the kick off, the ball is placed in a special kicking tee, which holds the ball in a vertical position and the kicker kicks the ball. The offensive team, which could not manage to pass 10 yards in 3 attempts, usually makes a "punt" - hits the ball with the hands towards the opponent's end zone during the fourth attempt, with an aim to make the opponent team start their attack from a place, far from the end zone. In the case of a Punt, the long snapper of the team throws the ball backwards. The punter should catch the ball and hit the ball with the hands towards the opponent team's end zone. In both cases, players hitting the ball have two objectives: to hit the ball as far as possible and see that the ball is in air for as long as possible. The objective of this player is to determine the place, from where the opponent team starts their advancing towards his end zone. The team, which possesses the ball, has one objective - return back the ball as close as possible to the end zone of the opponent team. At the same time, the attacking team tries their best to keep away the opponent from their end zone. Therefore, the ball staying in the air for a longer period, allows the attacking team to move closer towards the end zone of the opponent. If the kickoff ball goes beyond the end zone and remains there, then it is called a "touchback". In this case, the receiving team starts advancing towards the end zone of the opponent from the 20-yard line in their zone. The attempt to score a field goal - it is the third episode, when the ball is kicked with a foot. In this case, the long-snapper throws the ball back and it is received by the holder. The task of the holder is to put the ball vertically on the ground, holding his arm up so that it is convenient for the kicker to kick the ball into the goalpost. If the kicker hits the target, his team gets either 3 points or 1 point (if the field goal was scored as an extra point after the touchdown). In case of a miss, the other team starts advancing towards the end zone of the opponent from the place of the missed hit. Particularly this fact determines the choice of advancing teams between the punt and field goal attempt. Kickers rarely take the risk of scoring a field goal from a distance of more than 45-50 yards.
