Can the defense score on a two point conversion attempt?

Not in the NFL. Once the offense loses control of the ball -- with an incomplete pass, interception, or tackle -- the play is dead. In college and Canadian football, however, the defense can return the ball and score a 2-point defensive conversion.


How does a football team score a two-point touchdown?

If a team attempts a two point conversion after scoring a touchdown and the ball is fumbled and recovered by the defense or if a pass is intercepted by the defense who then run the ball back to the other end zone the defense team will be credited with the two points. This is called a defensive conversion. Note that this rule only applies in college football. In the NFL, the defense can't score on a point-after attempt.

Has there ever been an NFL or college football game where a team only scored 1 point?

Although it is not possible to score only one point in an NFL game in college football it is possible to score only one point. It has never happened, but it would involve a return by the defense on a extra point attempt. If the defense made a return on a blocked kick, fumble, or interception (all dead plays in the NFL on an extra point conversion), fumbled the ball before scoring at the other end, and the offensive conversion team recovered it then went back into the end zone and was tackled, it would a one point safety for the defense.

Can defense score on a point after touchdown?

In college football, if there is a turnover on a PAT and the defense returns the football to the opposite end zone, they receive 2 points for a defensive conversion. In the NFL, the ball is dead when a defending player touches it on an extra point attempt. There is an extremely rare scenario in the college game where the defense can score 1 point. The offense's attempt must be turned over, the defense then runs most (but not all) the length of the field, the defense then fumbles, the offense recovers it (not yet in their own end zone), the offense then voluntarily runs into their own end zone trying to evade a tackle, and the defense then tackles the offense's player in their own end zone. This is called a conversion safety, and counts 1 point for the defense. It makes a score such as 6-1 a possible score in college football. This is so rare that it has never actually occurred.

How many points are earned in football when the defense returns an extra point for a touchdown?

In High School, the minute a try is kicked, it is dead, regardless if the kick succeeds, misses, or is blocked behind the line. If there is a fumble on a two point conversion and the defense takes possession, the ball is dead and the try has failed. In the NCAA/NFL, if a PAT is blocked behind the line and possessed, or a two point conversion is turned over (interception or fumbled) and returned into the end zone it adds two points to the defense's score.
