A scrimmage down in football is a fancy word for a down or play at the line of scrimmage. The offense gets four scrimmage downs to move the ball toward the opposing team's end zone. The order of scrimmage downs always go first down, second down, third down, and fourth down. If the offense reaches or goes past the first down line on any scrimmage down, they earn a first down.
