The offense gets 4 downs to travel ten yards. If they make the ten yards, they get 4 more downs. This continues until they either score a touch down or a field goal. If a team fails to make 10 yards within the 4 downs, they usually opt to punt the ball away on the 4th down so the opposing team starts their drive with poor field position.
In American football, four. In Canadian football, three.

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.
