Scoring explained

Rules

The first time a safety is scored in a game, the offensive team will have a chance to score on the ensuing kickoff. The ball is then placed at the center of the field, with the ball carrier on the opposite side. The offense will take a snap from the safety position, and the defense will take a snap from the offence's safety position. After the snap, the ball is snapped to the other team, and the kicker must kick the ball on the goal line. If the kick is successful, the team receiving the kick must then drive the ball down the field.

The kickoff will then be downed, and the ball is placed at the other team's 33 yard line. If it is downed by a defender, the ball is placed at the other team's 25 yard line. If the ball is downed by a safety, the team receiving the kick must then drive the ball down the field.

Ball carrier

Even though a PAT attempt is the most likely result of a failed field goal, the team using a field goal is still awarded two points for the PAT attempt. The defense is not awarded the point for a safety, and the offense is not awarded three points. The PAT attempt should be scored in the same fashion as a field goal, but the two points awarded for failure are only awarded when the ball is touched by the kicking team with the time remaining on the half-time clock. Procedure for a PAT to be successful: The PAT attempt must be made at the same time as the field goal attempt, but not when the ball is taken from the kicking team. If the PAT attempt is successful: If the PAT fail, the team scoring the PAT is awarded the ball. If the PAT fail, the team scoring the PAT is awarded two points. On the ground, a safety does not allow an offensive team to score or set up a touchdown.

It also does not give the offense or defense a chance to get the ball back. A safety is awarded on a PAT or FG attempt from the 1 yard line. The defending team's ball carrier is placed on the ground and must pass the ball to the other team.

A safety is awarded on a PAT from the 2 yard line. The defending team's ball carrier is placed on the ground and must pass the ball to the other team. A safety is awarded on a PAT from the 3 yard line. The defending team's ball carrier is placed on the ground and must pass the ball to the other team. A safety is awarded on a PAT from the 4 yard line. The defending team's ball carrier is placed on the ground and must pass the ball to the other team.
