Each touchdown is 6 points but whoever scored the touchdown gets a chance to kick a field goal for 1 extra point. There is 100 yard on the field and each 10 yards is a first down. There is a rule where if you don’t get 10 yards in 4 tries the other team gets the ball. That is called a turnover on downs.
