Best Answer

In the NFL, if the offense scores a touchdown, the team is credited with a first down. Check any NFL game's play-by-play on nfl.com and count all of the first downs. Now, compare them to the total first downs credited in the box score. If touchdowns were scored by the offense, they must be added to make the totals come out even.

If a field goal is missed can the defense run it back for a touchdown and is that considered a blocked kick or just a regular punt return?

Yes, the defense can return a missed field goal for a touchdown. However, the touchdown would be credited to the special teams and not to the defense since a field goal is considered a special teams play. The TD would be considered under the heading 'return of a missed field goal' and not a blocked kick nor punt return.
