Missed Field Goal
On missed field goals the ball is placed on the football field:
- at the 20 yard line
- at the spot of the kick
It all depends on what yard line the kick was attempted on.

Football Missed Extra Point
After the offense scores a touchdown, the team that has just scored often opts to try for an "extra point," which is a short field attempt worth an additional point if scored. If the kicker misses the extra, there is no further penalty aside from not being awarded the point and the team that has just scored proceeds to kickoff to the opposing team per usual following a touchdown.
