Best Answer

Typically, a team receives 7 points from scoring a touchdown (6 points), and then kicking the foot ball through the posts for an extra point.

It is also possible through other means such as a field goal (3 points) and two 2-point safeties, or a touchdown and a 1-point offensive safety.

Scoring a touchdown scores you 6 points (the extra point kick after the TD gives you the extra point to make it 7). Or, you can kick 2 field goals (3 pts. + 3 pts. = 6 pts.). Another possible, although improbable, way would be to get 3 safeties (2+2+2=6). Pow!
