Objective of the game:
To score more points than the other team.
How to score:
Touchdown = 6 points
Extra point = 1 point
Field goal = 3 points
Field, Downs, and Kicks
Field is 100 yards long and 53 yards wide
Down = a play, a chance to move
the ball forward.

The offense gets 4 downs (chances)
to advance the ball 10 yards. If the
offense gets at least 10 yards, it
gets 4 new downs.

A play is over when the offensive
player is tackled, falls down, drops
the ball, or runs out of bounds.
If a team cannot reach 10 yards in
four downs, it can punt the ball
to the other team.

A kick off begins the game or the second half. A team also kicks off after it has scored a touchdown or a field goal.
