Football is a sport. It is played with a ball and pads for protection. It is only a sport in America, However. One Team Will kick off the ball and the other team will get the ball and try to run to the other side of the field without being tackled. While trying to get down the the other side you can run with the ball, throw it or aim for a field goal, which is getting the ball between a yellow U looking metal pole, I guess called a Goal Pole or something?  Once the player is tackled  the team will try again until, they exceed 3 trys, the other team intercepts the ball or a touchdown is made. This will continue until all the periods end and the team with the most points win.
