RULES OF THE GAME
The main purpose is to score more points than the other team by moving the ball down the field and into the opposing team's End Zone by either passing or running with the ball. Teams are made up of 11 players per side called Offense, who advance the ball ten yards in 4 downs (chances) and Defense who aim to get the ball (interception) and subsequently become the Offense.
