Best Answer

After a safety, the team that was forced into a safety must punt the ball to the opposing team instead of kicking a normal kickoff. I guess it just depends on how far the ball is being punted, there are no rules on how far the ball must be punted after a safety. So the answer is yes but it's not called an onside kick.

Most teams punt you can drop kick or have the ball held, any β€œfree kick” can be kicked and recovered by the kicking team as long as the kick travels 10 yards or is touched by the receiving team. You cannot drop a free kick. Kicking team gets at spot.

There is no such thing as an onside punt because if you punt it, the other team has to touch the ball before you can recover it. There is such thing as an onside kick on a kickoff when the ball can go ten yards then any team can recover it. Or on an onside kickoff if it hits the receiving team, anyone can recover it

Yes it can. It’s a free kick. You just cannot kick from a tee… Though in high school you can. In the NFL you can punt, drop kick, or have the ball held at the 20-yard line. You can also fair-catch a safety kick and attempt a fair-catch kick.

If a kickoff travels 10yards, but rebounds back to less than 10 yards, can the kicking recover it and gain possession?

No. Once a team gets close enough to its own goal, the penalty imposed will be half the distance to the goal line.

When is the last time time the New England Patriots scored a touchdown on a punt return?

The onside kick from scrimmage was eliminated, in the collegiate game, before WWI -- around 1912, I believe. The NFL started in 1920. So I guess the answer is -- never. In the NFL, an onside kick is only possible on a kickoff or on a free kick after a safety. But has there ever been an onside drop kick? I don't know, but lets consider why that would rarely (if ever) happen: Kickoffs are required to be a place kick (from a tee). So the only time you could even attempt an onside drop kick is after a safety, which is one of the rarest plays in football. An onside kick after a safety is very dangerous, as the kick must be from the 20 yard line. The opponent could recover the ball already in field goal range. An onside kick must hit the ground to prevent the other team from calling for a fair catch. This is more difficult to pull off with a drop kick.

What is a free kick in the nfl?

A "free kick" is any kick that is not a scrimmage kick. This includes kickoffs, or kicks that put the ball in play following a safety or a fair catch. A "scrimmage" kick, on the other hand, is a kick that takes place on a regular down or a try, when the ball must be snapped. This includes (most) punts, field-goal attempts and PATs. Kickoffs cannot be punted, but any other type of free kick can be punted, place-kicked or drop-kicked.

Can you fair catch an onside kick in football?

Yes. However, according to NFL Rules: " If ball hits ground or is touched by member of kicking team in flight, fair catch signal is off and all rules for a kicked ball apply. " Therefore, if the onside kick touches the ground, it may not be fair caught. Since the vast, vast majority of onside kicks are on the ground, it would be a rare sight to see an onside kick fair caught.


Can the kicking team on a kick off hit a man on an onside kick before the ball is touched by receiving team?
