American Football

By Patricia, Carla and Andrea.

What it's about:

American football is known as football in America. It’s a sport played by two teams of 11 players, on a rectangular field of 120 yards long and 53 yards wide which has a goalpost at each end. The offense advances the ball y running down the field or by passing it. Points are scored by making a touchdown in the opposite’s team end zone or by kicking the ball through the opposite’s team goalpost. The team that has more points at the end of the match wins.

•If the offense fails to move the football forward the required ten yards, they must turn the ball over to their opponent.•If the offense takes all four downs and fails to move the ball the required ten yards, the ball is turned over to the other team at that point on the field.•The offense also has the option, on fourth down, of kicking the ball to the opponent when they have failed to make the required ten yards and have too far to go to take a chance of making it on the remaining down. •When a team has the possession of the ball, the object is to move the ball forward into the end zone, to move the ball a minimum of ten yards in four attempts.
