The Offense Is Those Players Who Are On The Field

  • American Football: Each team has 3 separate units: the offense, those players who are on the field when the team has possession of the ball; the defense, players who line up to stop the other team's offense Madden 18 Coins; and special teams that only come in on kicking situations (punts, field goals, and kickoffs). Only 11 players are on the field from one team at any one time.

     

    A game starts with the kickoff. The ball is placed on a kicking tee at the defense's 30-yard line, and a "placekicker" kicks the ball to the offense. A kick return man from the offense will try to catch the ball and advance it by running. Where he is stopped is the point from which the offense will begin its drive, or series of offensive plays. When a kickoff is caught in the offense's own end zone, the kick returner can either run the ball out of the end zone, or kneel in the end zone to signal a
    touchback - a sign to stop the play.
