originally, the touchdown was not the goal of a football game, but instead a means to get a free kick at the uprights because of its roots in soccer and rugby. however, i believe in the late 1800s it was changed where you score a touchdown you get 5 points plus the chance for an extra point, totaling at 6 points. If i am not mistaken, it was changed again about 1920 to the 6 points plus the extra point attempt, just like it is now. In 1900, a touchdown counted for 5 points. It was increased to 6 in 1912 in American football. Canadian football didn't raise the value from 5 to 6 until 1956.
The offense in football try's to run plays and gain yards to make it all the way down the field to score points to win the game. At the end of the game if you have more points then your opponent you win the game. The main way is to get a touchdown by making it in the endzone for 6 points plus the extra point which is 1 or you can settle for a field goal worth 3 points.
Six. When it comes to points after a touchdown, an extra point adds one to the score. A successful two-point conversion adds two. If a touchdown wins a game in overtime, there is no extra-point attempt.
14 points if you get the extra point ,if get it on one the its 13, if you don't get it period,12
A touchdown=6 points A 2 point conversion=2 points A field goal=3 points for a total of 11 points
No. A single point can only be scored after a touchdown (a touchdown being worth 6 points). The lowest non-zero score a team can have is 2. A "safety" (tackling the other team's ball carrier in his own end zone) scores two points.
Safety (tackling the ball carrier while being in his own endzone) and PAT (Point After Touchdown), I think.
touchdown field goal extra point safety 2 point conversion
you get a touchdown. Or you get a field goal or a safety.
touchdown, field goal, or safety
