If the ball is knocked down, the next play is still gender because a female player never had a chance to make a play.

In all case where a play is in progress and a ball carrier loses flag either accidenttally , inadvertently, or on purpose, play shall be stopped at the spot where the flag is dropped.lfa player loses a flag, he still is eligible for a forward pass, but can not advance the ball, and t the ball is dead where the ball is caught.
2 completions = a first down (the pass must be caught forward of the line of scrimmage, not caught behind the line of scrimmage and ran forward of the line)
You may earn 1 first down in each half of the field and by crossing over the mid line.
The quarterback MAY run the ball on the defensive half of the field
The quarterback MAY not run the ball on the offensive half of the field
The defense may not cross into the backfield (across the line of scrimmage) until the side judge reaches the 5 second count. If the ball is handed off or a lateral is throw the defense may rush in immediately.
The 25 second snap count starts when the ball is set on the line of scrimmage. The snap count is in effect on extra points, because the clock runs on extra points except in the last 2 minutes of the second half.
A defensive player can never steal possession of the ball from an offensive player. If a ball is caught by two players at the same time, the offensive player is always awarded the ball. The only time a defensive player may steal the ball from an offensive player is if the ball is being bobbled/tipped in the air.
THERE IS NO INTENTIONAL GROUNDING.
