Brain Game: 11 Players, 11 Points
Yesterday evening, I watched the Colts and Bears battle each other in the season debut for both teams. During the game, Chicago scored a safety (worth two points) by tackling an Indianapolis running back in his own end zone.Â That got me thinking...Â
SupposeÂ an NFLÂ team won a game
by the final score of 11 to zero.
With no regard to the order
in which those points were scored,
can you name theÂ FIVE different scoring
combinations that would total 11 points?
HERE is the answer.
1. Touchdown, extra point, safety, safety (6+1+2+2=11)
2. Touchdown, 2-point conversion, field goal (6+2+3=11)
3. Touchdown (missed extra point), field goal, safety (6+3+2=11)
4. Field goal, field goal, field goal, safety (3+3+3+2=11)
5. Field goal, safety, safety, safety, safety (3+2+2+2+2=11)
