It's a touchdown.

Is it a touchdown if the defensive team blocks a punt and recovers it in the endzone?

Yes it would be a touchdown. If the kicking team recovers it and is downed in the endzone or the ball goes out of bounds in the endzone the defensive team will get a safety and receive the ball via free kick.

Is it a safety or a touchback if the defensive team muffs a punt reception and then the kicking team knocks it into the endzone where the defensive team recovers it in endzone?

It would be a touchback. A safety could only occur if the receiving team had established possession of the ball and then caused it to go dead in the end zone.

What happens if a player with the football gets tackled in his own end zone?

If the ball goes into the endzone due to an offensive player or action (taking the snap into the endzone, running it back into the endzone, etc...), then the play results in a safety. If the ball goes into the endzone due to a defensive player, such as a kick (once the ball is kicked, the kicking team is considered 'giving up' the ball, and is therefore a defense), then the play results in a touchback to the 20 yard line (25 on kickoffs in the NCAA).

How many points is kicking the ball after a touchdown in football?

One point. The team also has an option to do a play after they score a touchdown, which is called a two point conversion. In this the team can run one pay in an effort to score two points instead of one point by kicking it through the uprights (the yellow poles in the endzone). So yes, Kick after touchdown, One point Two point conversion, Two points

What is 2 point conversion in football?

It's a scoring play immediately following a touchdown - the team on offense tries to advance the ball into the endzone for two points as opposed to kicking the ball between the uprights on the goal for one point.

If a punt is partially blocked is it a live ball allowing the kicking team to recover it?

Yes it is a live ball and if the kicking team recovers they still have to get the first down and if the defense recovers its a turnover. The ball is live, however, the kicking team cannot regain possession of the ball unless the receiving team touches it first.

Define two point conversion?
