If the original offensive team gets a safety on the original defensive team after an interception/fumble they will receive a one (1) point safety. Safety = 2 points, points are awarded to the defensive team when the offensive team has the ball declared dead in their own end zone, or the ball lands in or out-of-bounds beyond their goal line. Touchback = 0 points, when the ball crosses the goal line by the attacking team (original possession by the offensive) and is declared dead in possession of the original defensive team (e.g. after an interception and following deflagging in defensive end-zone). After a touchback is declared, the ball will belong to the original defensive (new offensive team) at their own 5-yard line.
