If any 4th down play is not completed or falls short of the required yards for a 1st down, the opposition gets the ball at:

- the point of the last snap (incomplete pass),
- point the offensive player is down by contact (if a completed pass or run play short of first down marker)
- for an interception or fumble recovery, point the defender is down by contact or, if intercepted or recovered in the defense's endzone, at the 25-yard line
- at the point of the kick, rather than the point of the snap (failed field goal)
