One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The rectangular area at each end of the field into which the ball must be carried or passed and caught to score a touchdown.
- ‘Jake screamed handing off a fake pass to the receiver and dashing for the end zone to score another touchdown.’
- ‘Jason had just run into the end zone and scored the touchdown that tied the score.’
- ‘Byrd catches it, dashes toward the middle of the field and takes the pass into the end zone.’
- ‘Eight minutes and 15 seconds into overtime, Alan dived into the end zone for a touchdown.’
- ‘Make a player hold onto the ball after hitting the end zone to legitimize a touchdown.’
The area at either end of the rink, extending from the blue line to the boards behind the goal.
- ‘The outer zones are sometimes referred to as end zones, but most teams name them based on their position: the end zone in which a team is trying to score is the attacking zone or offensive zone; the end zone in which the team's own goal net is located is the defensive zone.’
- ‘Each team considers the end zone they are defending to be their defending zone.’
