In basketball, a field goal (a shot made from outside the three-point line) is worth three points.
A made free throw is one point. A made field goal is two points. A field goal attempted beyond the arc is a three point shot attempt. A made three point shot is three points.

The longest rushing TD play was made by Tony Dorsett of the Dallas Cowboys scored a 99 yard rushing TD on 01/03/1983 against the Minnesota Vikings. The most total yards ran for on 1 play was made by Antonio Cromartie of the San Diego Chargers when he returned the ball 109 yards, on a missed field goal, for a TD on 11/04/2007 against the Minnesota Vikings.
