2 teams of up to 50 players wearing helmets and shoulder pads attempt to move the ball down field to score a touchdown or a field goal to outscore the other team. Each team has 11 players on to the field at any time, with different line ups for offence defence and special-teams. There are unlimited substitutions throughout the game. The team on offence gets 4 downs to move the ball 10 yards or they must give the ball back to their opponents. Games are made up of four 15 minute quarters but the game lasts longer.
