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.
Herb Adderley of the Green Bay Packers was the first NFL player to return an interception for a touchdown in Super Bowl play. He intercepted a Daryle LaMonica pass and returned it 60 yards for a touch down in Super Bowl II.
That is the correct spelling of "touchdown" (a football scoring play).

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.
The team that has the ball has to cross the touchdown plain (white line) and still have possession.
Patriots RB Laurence Maroney on a 1 yard run on the first play of the 2nd quarter.
Shaud Williams' 80-Yard Touchdown Run, of course!!
Most would probably tell you Rocky Top (our unofficial fight song) but that is what we play after big plays. The band actually plays "Down the Field" (our official fight song) when we score a touchdown. You can still hear it playing as we kick the extra points.
6 ... the play is called a touchdown.
by throwing a ball and scoring a touchdown
Daryle Lamonica of the 1969 Oakland Raiders - six touchdown passes in the first half. Did not even play the 2nd half because the Raiders were winning 42-0 at half time. Lamonica could of had 12 touchdown passes if he had played the entire game.
I've never heard that term, but I would assume it means a touchdown scored from a play that originated at the line of scrimmage, as opposed to a touchdown scored on a kickoff return.
