what is the meaning of "field return"?
If a field goal is missed can the defense run it back for a touchdown and is that considered a blocked kick or just a regular punt return?
Yes, the defense can return a missed field goal for a touchdown. However, the touchdown would be credited to the special teams and not to the defense since a field goal is considered a special teams play. The TD would be considered under the heading 'return of a missed field goal' and not a blocked kick nor punt return.
