|What happens when u attempt a field goal on 3rd down and miss?|
The ball goes to the other team.
The other team gets the ball.. you relinquish the right to maintain possesion.. Now.. some cioaches will attempt a field goal on third down just incase there is a fumble on the snal.. since the ball was not actually kicked and if they recover, they maintain possession and can attempt to kick it again, but that does not happen often..
sides switch, you are laughed at
It's an automatic turnover.
you don't get another chance
The other team gets the ball.
If you just miss, you turn it over.
If kicked in bound the other team has a chance to return the ball, if out of bounds, other team takes over at spot of kick.
It would be 4th down if this were a normal play. But I think that there is a special rule for kicks. A punt yields the ball to the opposite team, so I would think a field goal would do the same.
If the ball is kicked and is no good, the ball goes to the other team at the line of scrimmage of the kick.
If it doesn't go past the line of scrimmage and you recover it you get the ball back and can try again on 4th down.
you start looking for another kicker
