Yes, there is an offside penalty in American Football.
The neutral zone is defined as the area extending from the tip of the football to each side of the field, so the neutral zone is as wide as the length of the football. No player, except the center, may have any part of his body in the neutral zone at the time the ball is snapped, otherwise they are guilty of being offside.
On a kickoff, no player may have any part of his body across the line upon which the ball rests prior to the kick, except for the holder if one is used.
The penalty for offside is 5 yards.

There is currently no offside rule in field hockey. There were prior offside rules, rules that restricted the positioning of players from the attacking team in a way similar to the offside rule in soccer.

The offside rule, or Law 11, is designed to add more sporting play to soccer. The International Football Association Board (IFAB, the group the writes and updates the Laws of the Game, of which FIFA is a member) believed that since without the offside rule, teams would post one or two players near the opposing goal to collect and score on long balls. Before there was offside, this was legal, but unsporting. By adding the offside rule, players would have to be onside at the moment their teammate plays the ball (if they become involved in play), or the other team would get a free kick. As a result, the game became more exciting, more sporting, more tactical, and ultimately more fair.
The original offside rule was that if any attacking player is ahead of the last defender when the ball is played then the attacking player must be given offside. The player must be given offside even if he doesn't receive the pass. The new rule is that the player can only be given offside if he is interfering with play i.e. he receives the ball, he obstructs defending players, blcoks the goalkeepers view, etc.
The Cambridge Rules, written in 1848, first introduced the concept of offside.
I cant tell you WHO invented the offside rule, but it was introduced in some of the early football games. By early i don't mean 1977 i mean when the game was first played! I think they were describing it as: "You cant hang around the goal or you will be penalised!" Probably the very early 19th century. Hope this helps! ^_^
The defense, by definition, cannot be called offside. This is because the offside position is measured from the moment a teammate last plays the ball. If the ball is in clear possession of the other team, you cannot be called offside.
