30 yards from where the ball was kicked off. If the kickoff was at the kicking team's 30 yard line, the ball will be placed at the offensive team's 40 yard line.

If a punt is kicked out of bounds is it a penalty?

No. The kicking team is penalized if a kickoff goes out of bounds, but on a punt, the ball is put in play for the receiving team at the point where it goes out of bounds.


In the NFL if the ball goes out of bounds while receiving a kick off and touches the ball on the 5 yard line in bounds does the ball come out to the 40?

As long as the ball was kicked from the kicking team's own 30, then yes. The rule is NOT that a kickoff out of bounds is placed at the 40-yard line. The rule is that the ball is placed 30 yards from the spot of the kick. So if the kicking team had been given a 10-yard penalty on the PAT play, and ended up kicking from the 20 instead of the 30, and the ball goes out of bounds, the ball would then be placed at the 50 -- 30 yards away.

Why Was I Always Taught That Once A Kick off Went 10 Yards It Was A Free Ball Unless It Went Out Of Bounds. I have Seen At Least 2 College Games Where The Ball Went Into The End Zone Untouched And Did?

There are two separate kicks (not including punts) in football, the scrimmage kick and the on-sides kick. The scrimmage kick is also known as the kickoff. A Kickoff occurs at the start of each half, after a team scores a touchdown or after a team scores a field goal. If the ball is kicked by Team A towards to opponents goal, Team B, the receiving team is given the opportunity to catch the ball. The receiving team must be given the opportunity to catch the ball. If the ball goes out of bounds in the field of play on the kickoff, it is a foul. The receiving team gains possession of the ball at the spot where the ball goes out of bounds. If the ball goes out of bounds in the end zone or hits the uprights, it is considered a touch back. The receiving team gets the ball at the 25 yard line. If Team A opts for an On-Sides kick, the ball must travel a minimum of 10 yards. If the ball travels more than 10 yards, it is considered a live ball, and any team may recover. If the ball goes out of bounds, the Receiving team retains possession at the spot where the ball goes out of bounds.
