There isn't a penalty called a fall start, but there is one called a false start. A false start is when someone on the offense who is already set prematurely moves before the ball is snapped and the play has begun.

The underdog in football is the team that shouldn't win against another team. Ex. Detroit Lions vs. New England Patriots. The Lions should NEVER win in that game because they are severe underdogs.

When given possession of the ball the offense is started off with ten yards to go on first down.

It depends how fast one is walking. The length of two football fields is equal to about 11.26% of a mile. therefore, if you are walking at 3 miles per hour, it would take 2 minutes and 15 seconds.
There is a difference.. NFL footballs are larger, longer and heavier.. NCAA footballs are smaller, shorters and lighter.
A player that runs out of bounds on purpose can not be the first player to make contact with the ball or the ball carrier. If they are pushed out of bounds by a blocker and make and effort to get back in quickly, they can make the tackle.
