Well you kick off to start the game, then you can punt the ball away and field goals to score. There's also a very obscure rule that you can drop kick(bounce the ball on the ground then kick it) the ball for a field goal but its only been attempted like twice in the past 50 years. Was common way back when but then they changed the shape of the football so it can be passed easier and the drop kick became useless cause a football doesn't bounce straight up usually.

I've been watching the pregame stuff ten minutes and already seen half of the US stereotypes upheld

Rugby players drop kick the ball all the time for drop goals, shouldn't be that hard

Rugbys are rounder. Footballs have more of a point so they bounce weird.

I have no idea what's going on

Why do they keep stop playing and why does the referee keep talking to the crowd

Like I said its obscure. Never happens cause itll more likely end in a fumble than anything else.

There was a formation penalty. Ref announces all penalties.

TD Ravens. 49ers need to settle down. Jumping offsides cost them 4 points.

That's the nature of the game af... I feel that if this frustrates you now there's no hope for watching the entire game

49ers bit hard on the play action. Ravens gonna run away with this if the niners dont score before the half.
