Points are not given for a Touchback. I believe you are confusing this with a Safety, where two points are awarded to the defense.
In the CFL, a rouge is worth 1 point and is the equivalent of a touchback in the NFL. No points are awarded for an NFL touchback.
A touchback is say theres a game going on. Patriots Vs. Steelers. The Steelers are punting it away to the Patriots. The Patriots catch the ball and kneel down in there end zone. Now they get the ball on the 20 yard line. That's what a touchback is in Football.
No. Well, sure you CAN... but the net result would be a touchback for the other team, not a score.
Safety and Touchback are not "positions", they are the results of a play, and they do have opposite definitions at this time. A Safety is scored when the offense is tackled in the endzone and awards the defense two points, and the ball. A touchback is declared when the defense takes possesion of the ball (by interception, fumble recovery, punt, or kickoff) in their own endzone and elects not to try to return the ball upfield. A touchback awards the ball to the receiving team at their own 20 yard line. Own in football describes the side of the field the team is defending. You score points in the opponents endzone.
Yes the receiving team always awarded 20yds as result of touchback!
The receiving team can run it out or down it in the end zone for a touchback; if nobody on the receiving team touches the ball, that's also a touchback and the receiving team gets the ball first and ten on their own 20 yard line.
it depends where
No, it is not possible or allowed.
no it's just a touchback No. A field goal can only be scored from a placekick or dropkick. The ball has to have made contact with the ground before it was kicked.
No, it is a real sport played by real athletes.
