Missed Field Goal
A missed field goal in football happens when the kicker kicks the ball and misses the goal post. Missed field goals result in a change of possession.
On missed field goals the ball is placed on the football field:
It all depends on what yard line the kick was attempted on.
20 Yard Line
If the missed field goal happens within the opposing team's 20 yard line, the ball is placed on the 20 yard line.
Field Goal Spot
If the missed field goal happens outside the opposing team's 20 yard line, the ball is placed at the spot of the kick.
On a missed field goal, the opposing team gets the ball along with a new set of four downs. The first down line is placed ten yards away from the scrimmage line.
