If a team tries for a field goal on 2nd down and misses do they still get the third and fourth downs?

If a field goal is attempted on any down other than fourth, the rules state that once the ball crosses the line of scrimmage the kicking team no longer has possession. This means that if a field goal is attempted on second down and the kick is blocked and the kicking team recovers behind the line of scrimmage, they retain possession. If the ball crosses the line of scrimmage, regardless of whether the kicking team recovers or not, possession goes to the defensive team.

The reason he still misses you is either he wishes he would not have broken up with you. He says he misses you because he really does or he says he misses you as a means of manipulating you. You know him best. You tell me.

no if you miss a field goal you don't get the ball back. if you miss the field goal because it is blocked and you recover the ball behind the lime of scrimmage you get the ball back as long as the kick was not attempted on fourth down.

If your ex still misses you it means he wants you back. I suggest you take it slow. Ask him if he wants to hang out sometime and your realtionship may grow back again.

Ask him if he misses you. If he says he does, then he does. Otherwise he probably needs more space. Yes, you can still smother someone even when they're halfway around the world.

It only misses between 45-50 mph, I suspect the transmission is jumping in and out of overdrive.

It simply means that he misses you and still has feelings for you.

When someone misses it, then another player "puts it back" while it is still in the air.

A fourth of a half is an eighth, a half of a fourth is still an eighth. They're both equal.

According the the nfl.com website once a field goal is missed the other team takes control of the football no matter what down it is.Here's the quote from nfl.com:All field goals attempted (kicker) and missed from beyond the 20-yard line will result in the defensive team taking possession of the ball at the spot of the kick. On any field goal attempted and missed where the spot of the kick is on or inside the 20-yard line, ball will revert to defensive team at the 20-yard line.Doesn't mention anything about downs. No. The reason you might sometimes see a team try for the field goal on 3rd down is in case of a bad snap or something they can spike the ball, throw to a receiver or just run with it and still have fourth down to try the field goal. If the ball fails to cross the line of scrimmage and the offense recovers, they get to kick it again. This usually only happens on a blocked kick. This applies on any down other than 4th. If the offense recovers on 3rd down, the next play would be 4th down. If the offense recovered on 4th down and didn't gain the necessary yards to make a 1st down, it would be a turnover on downs.The above answer is correct. As long as the ball does not cross the line of scrimmage on a blocked kick and the offensive team recovers the ball, the team may attempt another field goal as long as the blocked attempt did not occur on fourth down.

Actually, he isn't a kicker, but he is the punter thru out the entire game.

This is dependent on the circumstance as parents with downs syndrome can still raise a child.

Your ex boyfriend may not worry about getting back together with you if he still loves and misses you for many reasons. Maybe he is shy or does not think the feelings are mutual. He may have been pushed passed his limits or just does not know how to approach the situation.

Misses are for people who have a more slender, skinnier frame and waistline and are technically geared toward the teenager population who are still growing. Women's sizes are for the older woman with the curvier figure (not to be confused with overweight).
