In football what happens if you miss a field goal on first down?

If the field goal is blocked, and you recover, you can re-kick another field goal. If you miss the field goal it is a turnover. So, it is best to kick your field goal on 4th down


Can you kick a field goal in the Canadian football league on second down and re-kick on 3rd down?

When a team kicks the ball, it gives up possession of the ball. I'm not sure if you meant whether a team that unsuccessfully attempts a field goal on second down is entitled to try for another field goal on third down, or if you meant whether a team that successfully kicks a field goal on second down gets another attempt to kick a field goal on third down, but in either instance the answer is 'no.' You only get one kick at the ball.

Who kicks the football in football?

In soccer: All players kick the ball. In Australian football, all players kick the ball. In the rugby codes, it is mostly the 'running players' (the 'backs', rather than forwards). Even then, among the backs, more often the Full back or the centres will kick for touch. __________________________________________ If you are talking about American Football, only the punter and field goal kickers kick the football (unless I am forgetting any...). Usually the punter "kicks off" to start the game, or after a score, or after halftime. The punter also "punts" the ball on 4th down if the team wants to punt, and the field goal kicker kicks field goals when the team wants to.

If a field goal is attempted on third down and missed do you still get the fourth down?

When you are receiving a kickoff do you have to touch the ball in order for it to be a live ball?

Once the ball has gone 10 yards after being kicked during a kickoff, the ball is indeed live! During a punt, however, someone on the receiving team must touch the football for it to be live. The ball is always live during a kick. The only thing in question is who can recover, and when. On free kicks (including kickoffs and free kicks following a safety), the receiving team can recover the ball at any time, and the kicking team can recover either after it has traveled 10 yards or after the receiving team touches it after any distance. On scrimmage kicks (field goals and punts), the kicking team gives up possession of the ball unless (1) the ball fails to cross the line of scrimmage, (2) the kicking team then recovers the ball, and (3) the down played was not 4th down. In any other situation, the receiving team takes the ball. Once the ball crosses the line of scrimmage, the only way the kicking team can retake possession is if the receiving team fumbles, muffs, or touches the ball and the kicking team recovers.

What do you do to get a field goal?

you have to drive the offense down the field. If you don't get a first down and its fourth down, you can kick. I would only kick from 53 yards away at the max. you bring out your kicker, longsnapper, holder, and lineman. The longsnapper snps the ball to the holder, the holder hods it down staight on the ground, and the kicker kicks it.


When can a football field goal be made?

When do you kick the football in American Football?

The ball must be kicked after each score and to start each half (and overtime). PATs (point after touchdown) are mandatory if no 2-point conversion rule is in place. All other kicks are optional.The football may be punted on any play. A punt before fourth down is usually attempted as a quick kick. (Punts and quick kicks must be from behind the line of scrimmage.) Field goals also may be attempted on any down. PATs may be attempted immediately after a touchdown. A fair catch kick for 3 points may be attempted after a fair catch.Other than that, you are not allowed to kick the ball.

Yes. You can go for a Field Goal on any down and try again. Except For 4th of course.


Have you ever been able to keep possession of the ball after a 3rd down field goal attempt for another try?

Yes. In both college and the NFL, if a field goal attempt does not cross the line of scrimmage and is recovered by the kicking team, they will continue with possession of the ball. This ruling doesn't really come into play on 4th down kicks because the kicking team will lose possession of the ball on downs. But on third down, if a field goal attempt is blocked and the ball does not cross the line of scrimmage, should the kicking team recover the ball they keep possession and it will be fourth down. If the ball crosses the line of scrimmage, possession goes to the defense.
