Yes, that is the very definition of a drop kick in every sport that allows it. A drop kick is a type of kick whereby the ball bounces off the ground before kicking it. It is a legal play not only in the NFL but in the CFL, association football (soccer), Rugby, Arena football, and Australian rules football.

If you drop the ball in rugby and it goes forward but then proceed to kick it is that then a knock on or a drop kick?

My opinion is that it would be a knock on, the Ref will pick you up on the original drop, I think you'd have to make it clear it is meant to be a drop kick.

Does a tornado make contact with the ground?

Yes. If a tornadic vortex does not make contact with the ground it does not meet the defintion of a tornado, and is simply called a funnel cloud. If the violent circulation (not necessarily the visible funnel) reaches the ground it is considered a tornado.

How many points is a touchdown in the NFL?

A drop kick is worth 1 point if attempted as a Point After Touchdown, or 3 points if attempted as a Field Goal. The points are only rewarded if the attempt is successful of course. A drop kick isn't worth any points, per se, it is simply another method of kicking the ball. It was replaced by the punt in popularity when the shape of the ball was changed (from round to more pointed ends) in the 1930s to make it easier to throw passes. However, the drop kick can still be used, and if a ball is drop kicked through the uprights, it is considered a field goal and worth three points. If a drop kick is used during a point after touchdown (PAT) try, and is successful, it is worth one point. One rarely sees a drop kick tried these days as the more pointed ends make the bounce of the ball very unpredictable.

Clean the ground connection at the transmission from the battery negative lead. Take apart, use sandpaper to make metal bright and clean, reassemble. You seem to have an electrical ground problem.

Can the kicker punt the ball into the uprights on a fieldgoal?

I believe this IS allowed in the NFL so long as the ball leaves the kicker's foot before crossing the line of scrimmage. I can't recall though ever seeing this type of kick DONE in an NFL game. ---- A field goal is attempted when the ball is placed on the ground for the kicker to kick or when the ball is dropped to the ground and kicked once it touches the ground and starts its bounce back up. In other words, the ball must have touched the ground or is touching the ground when the kick is attempted for the attempt to be considered a 'field goal attempt'. A punt occurs when a kicker kicks the ball before it has touched the ground. No points can be scored by a punt. So the answer to the question, as I understand it, is no. No. If a punted ball travels through the uprights, no points are scored. The ball has to make contact with the ground before it's kicked to score points, either by placekick or dropkick.
