What is the object of football?

Now that we have the common ground that people just like to play and watch sports for whatever reason, we can get to how the game is played.

What is the object of football?

The premise of the game is to score more points than your opponent. Each game is completely separate from the others and winning one has no impact on the other game.

What does matter is your overall record of wins and losses. This is what allows you to go to the ‘post season’. For college that is bowl games and the newly created playoffs for the top 4 rated teams. For professional football that is a true playoff setup where it is ‘win or go home.’
