Best Answer

Scoring a field goal in American football cannot be done in conjunction with a touchdown. They are two independent ways of scoring.

You may have meant can you score an "extra point" without a touchdown. In American football, extra points (1 or 2 depending on type of play), can only happen in conjunction with a touchdown. In Canadian football, they may be scored under circumstances not related to a touchdown.
