Touchdown

A touchdown is the primary method of scoring in American Football in which the ball carrier causes the football to break the plane of the end zone and thus earn 6 points for his team.

A touchdown is analogous to a Rugby try, with the major difference being that for a try the football has to be place on the ground.
