Touchdowns are important because they help us know what the team is aiming for. The mistake many teams make in trying to score a touchdown is to do it in one big play. That can be done and there is a time for exciting big plays that can be a game changer for a team. The bigger the play, the rarer the play. Touchdowns happen more often after a series of small victories called first downs. Great teams know that small victories buy the team time and momentum in their quest for a touchdown. It takes patience, planning, and flexibility to maintain a long drive en route to a touchdown. Don’t miss the necessary first downs that result in a touchdown. Small victories add up to larger ones.
