Break. [American football]

The guys were playing American Football at some park, and after huddling up:

(Chandler is getting ready to kick off, Ross is holding the ball between his foot and finger.)
Chandler: The ball is Janice. The ball is Janice. (goes to kick the ball but kicks Ross’s foot instead.)


What did Monica mean by break? Isn't suppose to be "take a break"? Then why did they start playing?

I am may be confused because our football is very different (Americans call it soccer)

    Break is one of the things that can be said to break the huddle, i.e. get out of the huddle and get into position to play football.

    (Any chance of normal-sized type?)
