Friday Puzzler on Sunday -- 8 Points

Alex Y
This was inspired by an actual game on 11/17/18, in which a team scored 8 points on two successive plays, not a touchdown followed by a two-point conversion.

There are, as far as I can determine, four ways in which an American Football team can score 8 points on two successive plays.

The obvious one is a touchdown followed by a two-point conversion.

What are the other three?

BTW, the answer is true for college football, and I think NFL as well, although I am not that big an NFL fan.
