You can get 15 points on football by (note if I don't mention anything with a touchdown, then there is no extra points involved):

• 1 touchdown with field goal (7), 1 touchdown with conversion (8)
• 1 touchdown with field goal (7), 1 touchdown (6), 1 safety (2)
• 2 touchdowns (12), 1 field goal (3)
• 1 touch down with field goal (7), 2 field goals (6), 1 safety (2)
• 5 field goals (15)
• 6 safeties (12), 1 field goal (3)
• 4 safeties (8), 1 touchdown with field goal (7)
• 3 safeties (6), 1 touchdown (6), field goal (3)
• 3 field goals (9), 1 touchdown (6)
• 2 field goals (6), 1 touchdown with field goal (7), 1 safety (2)

### Does 2-15 in Gaelic football mean what were the names of the 2 teams of 15?

No. It is the score of one team. There are two ways of scoring in Gaelic Football. They are goals, by getting the ball into the net. A goal is worth 3 points. The other way is to score a point, by hitting the ball over the crossbar. The scores are often given showing both the amount of goals scored and the amounts of points scored, rather than the overall total. 2 - 15 means 2 goals and 15 points. That would be a total of 21 points.

### How many points can you get up to in American football?

In theory, the number of points would be limited by how fast a team could score during the allotted time for the game. A standard football game consists of four 15-minute quarters (12-minute quarters in high-school football and often shorter at lower levels). As an example: if a team could score a touchdown once per minute of a game and make a two-point conversion after each touchdown, then score a safety on the subsequent kickoff to the other team, they could score 600 points in a game. Such a scenario is exceedingly unlikely. The highest actual score in college football is believed to be the 1916 Cumberland vs. Georgia Tech football game, played on October 7, 1916, between the Georgia Tech Engineers and the Cumberland College Bulldogs at Grant Field (now known as Bobby Dodd Stadium) in Atlanta, Georgia. The game became the most lopsided in the history of college football, as Georgia Tech was victorious 222-0. In professional football, the highest score by one team (during playoffs) was 73 points when the Chicago Bears beat the Washington Redskins 73-0 on December 8, 1940. Highest scoring game was when the Washington Redskins beat the New York Giants 72-41 (a total of 113 points between the two teams) on November 27, 1966.

It's the same as an unanswered point in any sport. It means, simply that one team scored points, let's say a field goal, for two, and when the other team got the ball, they couldn't score. The first team scored two unanswered points. If one team goes on a run and scores 15 points to the opponents 0 points, they would have been said to have scored 15 unanswered points.
