touchdown, American football
A "TD" in football is a "touchdown" and is worth 6 points. Following a TD, a team has an opportunity to score a "PAT," or point after touchdown. This can be a kick for one point, or a run for two points.
The team that was crowned the French football champions in 2000 is AS Monaco.
The football team executed the play so awfully that the opposing team scored a touchdown.
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.
The team that won the Dutch football league in 2000 was PSV Eindhoven.
If a game is forfeited, the non-forfeiting team officially wins 1-0 (at least in college football). Though it has never happened, it is possible for a team to score just one point in a college football game (if the offensive team somehow gets tackled in their own endzone for a safety on the PAT, the defensive team would be awarded one point), but the other team has to score at least one touchdown for this to be possible.
An extra point is a football term. It is the field goal made after a team has scored a touchdown.
