An NFL field goal scores three points. The distance doesn't matter.
A field goal is worth three points regardless of whether it is place kicked or drop kicked.
Jason Hanson of the Detroit Lions. As of September 24, 2012, he has 2,053.
3 points. But a drop kick (which is similar to a field goal) is worth 2 points. A drop kick is where you drop the ball on the ground and let it bounce up in the air then kick it through the goal posts. This is very difficult to do and is very rarely tried in the nfl.
Touchdown = 6 points Conversion or "try" = 1 point if kicked, 2 points if pass/run Field goal = 3 points Safety = 2 points
