You get 6 points for a touchdown.
originally, the touchdown was not the goal of a football game, but instead a means to get a free kick at the uprights because of its roots in soccer and rugby. however, i believe in the late 1800s it was changed where you score a touchdown you get 5 points plus the chance for an extra point, totaling at 6 points. If i am not mistaken, it was changed again about 1920 to the 6 points plus the extra point attempt, just like it is now. In 1900, a touchdown counted for 5 points. It was increased to 6 in 1912 in American football. Canadian football didn't raise the value from 5 to 6 until 1956.
