Yesterday evening, I watched the Colts and Bears battle each other in the season debut for both teams. During the game, Chicago scored a safety (worth two points) by tackling an Indianapolis running back in his own end zone. That got me thinking...

by the final score of 11 to zero.

With no regard to the order
in which those points were scored,
can you name the FIVE different scoring
combinations that would total 11 points?

HERE is the answer.
