Football Basics for Kids (and some adults too)

A football team is made up of 3 units.  The units are called the Offense, Defense and Special Teams.  Each team my have 11 players on the field at one time. 

Offense Team Leader on Field: Quarterback Joe Flacco

Offense Object: Score points as follows
Touch Down 6 points
Extra Point 1 Point (A kick after a touch down)
Go For 2 Points (try to get a touch down type point after a touch down for 2 points)
Field Goal 3 points (the ball is kicked to score the points)

Each time the Offense moves the ball 10 Yards they get a 1st down.  They have 4 downs to try to move the ball or score.  Most teams Punt (kick off) the ball to the other team if they are on 4th down.  1 yard is the same as 3 feet.

POINTS !!! And how they add up!

- The biggest goal for an offense, every time they take possession of the ball, is to score a touchdown. To score a touchdown, a player must carry the ball across the opposition's goal line, or catch a pass in the end zone. Once the ball crosses the plane of the goal line while it is in a player's possession, it is scored a touchdown. A touchdown is worth six points.
- The team scoring a touchdown is given the bonus of trying to add one or two more points. These are called extra point conversion attempts.
- If a team elects to go for two extra points, they will line up at the two-yard line and make one attempt at either running or passing the ball into the end zone. If they make it, they are awarded two points. If they don't, they get no extra points.
- They can also elect to go for just one extra point by kicking the ball through the goal posts from the two-yard line.
- Another way for a team to score is by kicking a field goal. When a team finds themselves in a fourth-down situation, many times they will attempt to kick a field goal if they feel they are close enough for their kicker to kick the football between the upright bars of the goal post in the opponent's endzone. A field goal is worth three points.
- A team can also pick up two points by tackling an opponent possessing the ball in their own end zone. This is called a safety!

Touchdown = 6 points
Extra Point Conversion = 1 point
Two-Point Conversion = 2 points
Field Goal = 3 points
Safety= 2 points


Defense Team Leader on Field: RAY LEWIS !!!

Defense Object: Prevent Scores, Interceptions (Catching the ball and creating a turnover!), Creating Fumbles (turnover on the ground) and recovering Fumbles.  Also the goal of the Defense is to prevent the Offense from moving forward.
