No, the kicking team would need to gain possession of the ball.

For kickoffs, the ball is considered a 'free ball' once it travels 10 yards from the spot of the kick. The ball is also considered 'free' if a member of the receiving team touches it, but does not gain full possession, before it travels 10 yards from the spot of the kick. The first team whose player gains possession of the ball is awarded the ball. Touching the ball does not signify possession ... a player must have full possession of the ball for his team to be awarded possession.

A lot of 'possessions' in that last statement but that is the qualifier as to which team is awarded the ball. Touching the ball means nothing, possessing the ball means everything.

Basics of football?

The basics of football is to score more points than your opponent. The way to do this is by either running the football into the end zone which gives you six points, or by throwing the football to another teammate and if he/she catches it, than that is a touchdown which also gives you six points. After the touchdown, the team that scored has a chance to either attempt a field goal (kicking the football through the field goal) which is 1 point or go for 2 points by running a normal offensive play, you may not kick the ball in order to get the 2 point conversion. Both offense and defense must play 11 players on the field at once.

Football demands far more skill than gridiron [steroid ball]. You have to be fit to play football and have technical abilities. Depends on what you mean.
