Yes. Assuming that no other points are scored, a team can score 5 points through the following (in any order):

* Getting a field goal (3pts)

* Receiving a safety (2pts)

A field goal is achieved when, in the course of normal play, the coach/manager decides that the team is no longer able/likely to achieve a touchdown but is close enough to the goal line (and the uprights) to kick the ball through to earn three points.

A safety is earned for team A, in the course of normal play, when team A tackles a member of team B who is carrying the ball behind their own goal line.

### How is 4 man 30 point league bowling calculated?

There is no specific definition of a 4 man 30 point league system. Points can be earned for a team beating its opponent for each game and series (scratch score, handicap score or both). In some leagues, points can also be earned for a bowler on a team beating their opponent for each game and series (scratch score, handicap score or both). So one league could define their league as earning 30 points by: A team will earn 10 points for winning the handicap game and 10 points for winning the handicap series. Another league could define their rules as: A team will earn 5 points for winning the handicap game and 5 points for winning the handicap series. A team will earn 5 points for winning the scratch game and 5 points for winning the scratch series series. Another league could define their rules as: A team will earn 2 points for winning the handicap game and 10 points for winning the handicap series. A bowler will earn 2 points for winning the handicap game.

### Could an NFL team win a game one to nothing?

If a game is forfeited, the non-forfeiting team officially wins 1-0 in high school and college football. The exception is if the offended team is already ahead at the time of the forfeit, in which case the score stands as-is. Though it has never happened, it is possible for a team to score just one point in a college football game (if the offensive team somehow gets tackled in their own endzone for a safety on the PAT, the defensive team would be awarded one point), but the other team has to score at least one touchdown for this to be possible.
