In the NFL and most other American football rules a team gets four downs to either score with a touchdown, a field goal, or to make a first down, and start the count of downs again. Usually the fourth down is used to punt the ball away, rather than give the football up on the spot, if the previous three downs didn't result in some more favorable outcome.
The offensive team is allowed four downs, or plays, to advance the ball 10 yards. If they can advance the ball 10 yards in four plays, they get another four plays to move the ball 10 yards further downfield. This continues until the offense advances the ball into the end zone for a touchdown or they are unable to get the required 10 yards on four plays. In Canadian football, the same circumstances exist, except that a team gets only three downs to advance the ball 10 yards.
Teams get four downs to move the ball 10 yards. If they gain the 10 yards, they get a new set of four downs.
