  American football - Open Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
American football, known in the United States simply as football, is a competitive team sport that rewards players' speed, agility, skill, tactics, and brute strength as they run and throw a ball, and block, tackle, and outrun each other, trying to force the ball further into their opponent's territory and ultimately into the endzone.
However, both of these games have their origins in varieties of football played in the United Kingdom in the mid-19th century, and American football is directly descended from rugby football, usually known simply as "Rugby".
Football is also occasionally used by followers of the sports of Rugby Union, Rugby League, Gaelic Football and Australian Rules Football to refer to their sport.
