A field goal can happen on any down and from anywhere on the football field. A place kicker will line up behind the scrimmage line and kick the ball through the goal post. A team should be in field goal range before they go for a field goal.
A kickoff happens after any score in football. Kickoffs are kicked by a place kicker behind restraining lines.
