2nd Down and 6: On this play, the quarterback passes to one of the wide receivers to the 49-yard line for a gain of 5 yards.

Since the receiver gained 5 yards, the next play becomes 3rd down and 1 (6 yards minus five yards gained) yard to go. The team needs to gain 1 more yard (to the 50-yard line) to gain a total of 10 yards for a new first down (four more plays) and to retain possession of the football.
