Basically: the ball has to get to the end zone (much like in rugby) :p 

 

You've got four chances (downs) to gain 10 yards, when you have gained 10 yards, you get a new set of downs (meaning you start with 1st down). That's the very basic thought :p 

 

thanks for this info. , i also have another question as long as u finish your 4 attempts , u can kick the ball from what ever spot of the field and if u score u get 3 points , or the ball should be in your opponent last 10 yards ?

You can kick from everywhere, yes. Usually you kick if you didn't make the 10 yards in 3 attempts and you have the ball within about 30 yards from the end zone (the end zone is 10 yards deep and the holder gets the ball about 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage (where the ball was stopped in the latest completed play), meaning that about 17 yards is added to the length of the kick). The longest kicks have been more than 60 yards, but usually they don't go for more than just above 50 (depending on how good the kicker is).

So yeah. They can kick anytime and anywhere they want, but usually they only do it when necessary (you won't get longer or time is running out)

NFL News:

Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, has signed a four-year, $134 million extension with Green Bay Packers. This contract will make him the highest paid player in NFL history. :yikes:

It is reported that he will earn more than $80 million by March 2019.

Another big story from NFL is that wide receiver, Odell Beckam Jr. from the New York Giants, has signed a five-year extension deal, which is reported to be worth $95 million, making him the highest paid wide receiver in NFL history.

Yeah... 

I know players has been told/forced to stand up for the national anthem, but a player like Malcom Jenkins, from The Eagles, has been quite vocal about why the players are kneeling. I don't know if he will still kneel on the field under the national anthem, or just follow this new stupid rule? I hope he will do the former.

I’m honestly boycotting the NFL currently, so I wouldn’t know unless it makes the news
