American Football 101:

The purpose of the game is to score a touchdown by moving the ball towards, and ultimately into, the opposition's end zone. This can be achieved by either running with the ball until tackled or throwing the ball downfield to a team-mate.

Although there are only 11 players from each side on the field at any one time, an American football team is made up of 45 players, ranging in size, speed and their roles within the team.

The dimensions of a football field haven’t changed much over the years. The field has been 100 yards long and 53 1/3 yards wide since 1881. In 1912, the two end zones were established at 10 yards deep and have remained so ever since. Consequently, all football games are played on a rectangular field that’s 360 feet long x 160.
