A field goal is when the ball is place-kicked (center snaps ball to a holder who then places the ball on the ground on its end and the kicker kicks it). the field goal must go between the goal posts and above the crossbar to count. The kicking team receives 3 points for a fieldgoal and must then kickoff to the other team. If the kicking team misses the fieldgoal then the ball changes possession to the opposing team at the previous spot of the ball.
An extra point kicked after a touchdown is ade or it is kicked after a fourth down .
