The field goal posts on an American football field are located at the back end line of the end zone, ten feet off the ground and extending straight up from there. Today, the support that holds the goal posts is usually several feet behind the end zone so players aren't impeded or in danger of running into them.

The goal lines are the shorter lines on the field and the goals are on them.
