    A touchdown is worth 6 points, and the extra point (the free kick afterwards) is a single point, usually allowing for a score of 7 points

    Touchdowns are 6 points.

    After that a team has two options:

    -Kick a field goal for one point (called an extra point). This is the usual decision teams make because they are almost automatic in college and the NFL, though you do occasionally see them missed.

    -Run or pass the ball into the end zone to get 2 points (a 2-point conversion). This tends to be done when a team is trying to come from behind late in a game and needs points.

    So, most of the time a TD will end up resulting in 7 points, but they are technically worth 6.

    Touchdown is worth 6 points. After that you have a chance to win extra points (1 or 2). A field goal (kick) is worth 1 point and a conversion (a run or pass into the end zone) is worth 2 points.

    Touchdown is worth 6 points, then the free kick is worth 1 more point for a total of 7 points.

    Neither...6

    When a team has possession of the football, it can score points in several ways. Touchdowns, extra points, two-point conversions, field goals, and safeties all can increase a team's score.

    Touchdown...6. After the touchdown the scoring team is given another chance to score in 1 play from the 2 yard line...1 point for a kick over the goal post or 2 points for a completed pass or run over the goal line.

    Other ways to score points:

    field goal...3 points for kicking the ball over the goal post

    Safety...2 points for the defense if it tackles the offense in its own end zone

    Touchdowns are 6 point then a field goal is kicked and the team gets another point if they make it.
