The nuts and bolts Your team moves down the field by either running the football, or passing the football. Your team will keep the football as long as you make a first down. You have 4 attempts to make a first down. (1st down, 2nd down, 3rd down, 4th down) On the 4th down, if you are on your half of the field, you should punt the ball to the other team. If you are on your opponents side of the field, you should go for a 1st down. Know if you don’t get a 1st down, the opponents get the ball at that spot.
Kick-off and Touchdown
The game is started with a kick-off. The receiving team shows the other team they are ready by raising their arms before the kick. After every touchdown, the scoring team will kick-off to the other team. You can score a touchdown by catching the football in the end zone, or running it in. A touchdown is worth 6 points.
