Touchdown! Learn how to score points with offense in a game of American football with the expert tips in this free football beginner guide on video.
I am going to tell you a little bit about all the different ways in which you can score in the beginning football. We have talked about in the previous segment the goal is the primary objective for an offense or defensive score. If you are an offense and you have football in your possession, you are driving against the opponent’s defense. There are several ways you can score with offense. You can score either by running the ball in with the skill position and/or you can pass the ball in to the end zone. Any of those types of scores from an offensive standpoint either run or pass or fumble recovery. Run into the end zone would result in a six point play. Afterwards it is fairly common to bring on your extra point kicker, your field goal kicker and allow him to attempt what is called a point after attempt, PAT. A point after attempt is where the ball is snapped and kicked from the two yard line in which case one point is achieved. There is also something called a two point play, a two point play is where the ball is placed on the two yard line and the offense come out in regular formation and drives the ball into the end zone either through a pass play or through a running play in which case two points are achieved.
