Kick

What is Kick?

The act of advancing the football by using your foot. There are three times during which a kick is used:

- Kickoff, used after scoring plays or at the beginning of each half (or overtime)
- Punt, also known as "drop kick", is used primarily on the final down
- Field goal, used to score three points when a touchdown is unlikely

Sporting Charts explains Kick

Most football teams have two different kickers on their team: one who specializes in punting (or drop kicking) the ball and another who strictly performs field goals and kickoffs.
