What are some similarities between rugby and American football?

Both sports have a “touchdown” and score points by kicking the ball through a goal post.

The term touchdown is a rugby term. The player scores by “touching the ball down” in the other teams goal (American football's end zone). This is called a try and they get 5 points and a chance for a 2-point conversion (kicking the ball through the goal post.

American football players score by running into end zone or passing the ball to a player who is in the end zone. This touchdown is worth 6 points and the team has a chance to either score 1 point by kicking the ball over the goal post or score a 2-point conversion by passing the ball to a player in the end zone.
