Football is played on a rectangular field one hundred yards long x 160 yards wide, with a ten foot long area at each end called the end zone.There are two opposing teams of eleven players each, with each team having opposite halves of the football field as their 'territory.' The teams take turns at either being the Offense (having the ball in their possession and trying to score points) or the Defense (trying to stop the offense from scoring points).Time of play is 60 minutes, divided into four fifteen-minute segments (called quarters). Yes, we know: you've never heard of a football game that lasted only an hour. That's because these guys take more time-outs than your average pre-schooler.When a team has possession of the ball (i.e., they are 'on offense'), the object is to move the ball forward into the end zone, or, barring that, to move the ball a minimum of ten yards in four attempts (called downs, the first of each series being 'first down,' and so on). To make it easy to keep track of their success or failure ,the playing field has lines drawn across it at five-yard intervals, with the yard numbers noted every ten yards (as you can see in the above diagram of a football field).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. That is, the defense now becomes the offense at the exact place where the offense has been stopped.The offense also has the option, on fourth down, of kicking the ball to the opponent when they have failed to make the requird ten yards and have too far to go to take a chance of making it on the remaining down. As you can see, if they have to turn over the ball to the opposition after failing to make ten yards in four downs, where they are on the playing field when this happens is key. If they are still closer to their own end zone than to that of their opponent, if they give the ball to their opponent at that place on the field, they have placed their opponent closer to being able to enter their end zone and score against them. In that case, they can (and usually do) use the option of kicking the ball to their opponent such that the ball winds up as far away from their end zone as possible.
