Having possession of the ball is a powerful thing in football. Your team is on offense is trying to score by moving the ball towards the opposing team's end zone on the field. The team with the most points at the end of a football game is the winner.
There are two ways that teams move the ball on the football field:
- Turnovers (fumbles, interceptions, turnover on downs)
- Missed field goals
- Coin Toss (second half)
Football Coin Toss
Football teams may change possession of the ball after half time. It all depends on the coin toss and which team got the ball at the start of the first half. If a team chose to defer on the coin toss, they get their first choice of the coin toss options at the start of the second half.
