To play football you’ve got to know the rules
and the first rule of football is the team with the most points wins. You score points
by running the ball into the end zone, earn just six points, and once you score the six
points, you have an opportunity to go for an extra point or points. You can kick a field
goal or kick in extra points through the up rights for one point or you can choose to
go from the three yard line and try to run it in the ends and again for an additional
two points. Now you can say what is the objective of a defense? What’s their goal? Is it to
stop the offense? No? Objective as a defense is to score points as well. Now, if they get
an interception, they’d want to return it back and score six points and then obviously
do their extra point. The other way to score points is to kick a field goal. That is anywhere
on the field that you can kick the ball through the up rights will earn you three points.
Also, if, the other way a defense can score points is by safety in which they push the
offense so far back that they get stuck in their own end zone. That will give them two
points. The offense is four downs, you go ten yards. If they don’t go ten yards and
four downs, then the other team gets the ball. Now, once a team goes ten yards, then their
down start over to the first down. They got another four times to go ten yards. The defense
stops the other team from advancing the ball by tackling them. There are twenty two players
on the field at each time. The field width is fifty three-fifty three; the field width
is fifty three yards; fifty three and a third yards. Field length is one hundred twenty
yards. A hundred yards of playing of-of marked space and then two ten yard end zones. Gold
post are ten feet high with up rights going as high as you want. That’s how you play football.
The team with the most points wins.

  1. But, what if you run really far, and then get tackled? Why is it better to have ran a long way, then get tackled before makin' a touchdown, than running to metres and get tackled? I'm kinda confused their, if you get my question.

  5. Wow, that was possibly the worst "How to play football" video I have ever seen. Thanks for describing how everything works, you know- like the types of players on both offense and defense… You didn't explain anything that would be useful to a beginner. I would rather have eaten my dog's shit than watch your shitty fucking video.

  6. Okay,I'm guessing,if I want to be awesome in high school,as an Irish exchange student,I go onto the pitch,wave at the girls,use my manly greatness to barrel past anyone that gets in my way,and finally,most importantly,look good doing it 😉
