A field goal is when the ball is place-kicked (center snaps ball to a holder who then places the ball on the ground on its end and the kicker kicks it). the field goal must go between the goal posts and above the crossbar to count. The kicking team receives 3 points for a fieldgoal and must then kickoff to the other team.
