mrfahaji Posted August 21, 2011 Share Posted August 21, 2011 (edited) Hello. I have a question about conditions for scoring a Touchdown. Not being from the US, I haven't been brought up on the game and have had to learn it all myself, and sometimes I see things which I can't locate an answer for on the web. So, I turn to the Falcons community to help me!To score a touchdown, there seem to be a number of conditions required. There are the obvious ones (running & catching in the end zone), but then there are a couple of others, such as:1. Ball is outside the endzone, but player catches and has his feet (both?) in the end zone.2. Player is outside the endzone, but gets the ball to cross the plane whilst still in his hands.But are there other ways?For example, I'm sure last season, Troy Polamalu scored a TD, and also perhaps one of the Bengals against the Falcons did something similar, where they seemed to be in the air whilst the ball crossed the goalline, before then going out of bounds. I don't recall, in Polamalu's case, the ball being in the endzone whilst Troy's feet were on the ground. Equally, what happens if a Running Back (for example) leaps over someone, crosses the plane with his arm, but doesn't have contact with the ground?Hope that makes sense... as I said, I understand most of the rules but then there always seem to be one or two nuances which I can't figure out!
