How many points are scored if the defensive team blocks the extra point and returns it for a touchdown?

None. During an extra point attempt only the team attempting it can score any points. If the defensive team blocks the kick it becomes a dead ball. The above is true EXCEPT in college football. In college, the defense can return a blocked extra point or a turnover during a 2-point attempt. If the defense can return it across the opposing goal in one play, they are awarded two points. If they fail, the try is over and the ball is kicked off as usual.

How many points are earned in football when the defense returns an extra point for a touchdown?

In High School, the minute a try is kicked, it is dead, regardless if the kick succeeds, misses, or is blocked behind the line. If there is a fumble on a two point conversion and the defense takes possession, the ball is dead and the try has failed. In the NCAA/NFL, if a PAT is blocked behind the line and possessed, or a two point conversion is turned over (interception or fumbled) and returned into the end zone it adds two points to the defense's score.

Has there ever been an NFL or college football game where a team only scored 1 point?

Although it is not possible to score only one point in an NFL game in college football it is possible to score only one point. It has never happened, but it would involve a return by the defense on a extra point attempt. If the defense made a return on a blocked kick, fumble, or interception (all dead plays in the NFL on an extra point conversion), fumbled the ball before scoring at the other end, and the offensive conversion team recovered it then went back into the end zone and was tackled, it would a one point safety for the defense.

Can a fumbled snap on an extra point conversion be run back by the defense for a touchdown?

In college football, yes, except it counts as a 2-point "defensive conversion," not a touchdown. In the NFL, no. As soon as the defense takes possession, the ball would be dead.

In the NFL can you score on a blocked field goal?

Both the offense and defense can score on a blocked field goal. The defense can recover a blocked field goal and advance it regardless of where they recover it. The offense can recover a blocked field goal and advance it as long as the ball has not passed the original line of scrimmage.

If the ball is intercepted on an extra point can you score a touchdown?

You cannot score a touchdown if you intercept an extra point. If you return it for a touchdown (all the way to the other team's end zone) you get two points. This is only for college level football. Professional football and High School football immediately blows the whistle and the play is dead when an extra point kick attempt is blocked.

If you block an extra point in the NFL and return it will you get any points?

You do not get extra points for blocking an extra point attempt. Points in football can only be scored by action in the end zone. First, the above answer is incorrect, as points scored by kicking the ball through the uprights do not involve "action in the end zone." Second, in college football you ARE awarded two points if the defense blocks an extra point and returns it all the way across the opposing goal line in one play. But in high school or the NFL, blocked PATs are immediately ruled dead.

Can a blocked field goal be returned by the defense?

Yes, as long as a knee has not touched the ground. If the ball is recovered, you may run if you pick up the ball immediately.

What happens when the defense blocks an extra point try and recovers the ball?

If the extra point hits the ground, it is no good. If the deffending team catches it, they could get two points. In order to get the points, they have to run it back to their opponent's end zone without being tackled or going out of bounds. If they do not run it back all the way, they do not get the two points, but the ball is kicked off to them.
