The banana kick is a freekick with the ball dipping in a curve into the net like a banana, Roberto Carlos was famous for this.
The linemen can only get it on a fumble or a bad pass.
When the QB throws the ball away to avoid a sack, there must be a wide reciever in the area or he must be out of the pocket. If not, it is grounding which is a 15 yd penalty and loss of down.
The goalposts and crossbar must be made of wood, metal or other  approved material.         Source:  Football Stadiums: Technical recommendations and requirements - 5th  Edition

No. You cannot kick the ball to a teammate either way really.

A kick off is a live ball and can be advanced wether it is an onsides or regular kick off did you know that on a regular kick off if the kicking team gets the ball before the receiving team they regain possesion and if it is in the endzone that is a touchdown     To my knowledge, the kicking...
It means exactly that. If a play was called one way then challenged by a team and then the call was reversed after a review, it usually means that call will be the official call. That reversed call can usually affect the outcome of the game. This is not always the case, but it does happen.

No it depends on if it is a running clock or not.
A football field goal can be made whenever a team is close to their goal line and on 4th down. If they feel they are unable to complete a pass or run to make a 1st down they can attempt a field goal and take 3 points rather than 6 with a touchdown.
Points are not given for a Touchback. I believe you are confusing this with a Safety, where two points are awarded to the defense.
No. In NFL football, once a ball hits the uprights (goal post), whether from a pass or a missed field goal or a punt, it is out of play.

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.
