What is the difference between football and American football?

The difference between soccer (otherwise known as "football" to many) and football (otherwise known as "American football" to many), is basically the whole way the two sports are played. While the objective, like many sports, is to score more points than the opposing team, the way the points are scored are vastly different. In soccer, by getting the ball into the opposing teams net using nothing but one's feet or head is basically how all points are scored. In football, getting the ball to break the plane of the end zone (touchdown) by carefully moving up the field is basically how a majority of points are scored.
