There are two teams both consisting of 11 players each. The team, who wins the coin toss, has possession of the ball first, is the offense and tries to advance the ball down the field in serious of plays. You can run the football or advance by passing the ball down the field. You can score points by running the ball or passing it into the end zone, which is the area past the goal line at the end of the 100 yard field. If you get the football into the end zone, your team earns 6 points and you have an opportunity to kick the football into the field goal for an extra point. If you don’t make it to the end zone, the kicker can punt the ball into the field goal, directly above the end zone, and have the chance to get 3 points instead of 7. The team on the opposite side of the scrimmage line (also has 11 players) is called the defense. The defenses job is to try to stop the offensive team and make it give up the ball. If the defense successfully gets the ball from the offense, or the offense scores, the two teams switch roles. In a normal game there are 4 quarters each lasting 15:00 minutes. At halftime the teams switch sides and who ever received the kick off in the beginning will be kicking it off after halftime.
