Best Answer

A touchdown is scored in football when a player carries the ball over the opposing players' goal line, or if he catches a pass in the end zone. Another way to score a touchdown is if the offensive team has its back close to the end zone and the quarterback has to step into the end zone to make his play and there is a fumble. If the defensive team recovers they score a touchdown.

Can you score a field goal without a touchdown in the NFL?

Scoring a field goal in American football cannot be done in conjunction with a touchdown. They are two independent ways of scoring. You may have meant can you score an "extra point" without a touchdown. In American football, extra points (1 or 2 depending on type of play), can only happen in conjunction with a touchdown. In Canadian football, they may be scored under circumstances not related to a touchdown.
