A field goal is scored when (c) The entire ball must pass through the goal. In case wind or other forces cause it to return through the goal, it must have struck the ground or some object or person before returning. (Section 5, Article 1 (c) 2005 Official Rules of the NFL).
If the receiver first touch a missed field goal anywhere beyond the line of scrimmage and the kickers recover, the ball belongs to the kickers at the spot of the recovery. If in the end zone, it is a touchdown. (Supplemental Notes, Section 5, Article 2 (4) Official Rules of the NFL).
