Take this to bed with you and ponder it...
The team with the ball at the time, the offense, gets 4 chances (plays) to advance the ball 10 yards. If they don't, the other team takes over right at that spot, that's if the team with the ball doesn't elect to punt (kick) the ball out of hand a lot farther (50 or so yards down field) ... This is what happens 90% of the time...
