Best Answer

In American football, a play is called a down. A team, on offense, has four downs to advance the ball ten yards. If the team is successful in doing this, they get another four downs to advance the ball ten yards. Second down is the second play in the series where the team needs to advance the ball ten yards to keep possession of the ball.
