If the player is tackled in the endzone it's a touchback and the ball will be spotted at the 20. But if he runs it all the way back it's a touchdown.


In the NFL, that's not possible. The play would be whistled dead once the offense had lost control of possession. In college and Canadian football, however, the defense would be awarded a 2-point defensive conversion for successfully running the ball back to the opposite end zone.
