• The distance of a field goal is the exact amount of yards from where the ball is kicked to where the crossbar is on the goalpost. Most often, the distance is 17 yards more than the yardline where the ball is snapped from because the end zone is 10 yards, and most kickers kick the ball from 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage.
