NFL considering longer extra-point tries


According to, the league is considering increasing the length of extra-points:

“The NFL Competition Committee has discussed experimenting this preseason with a longer — much longer — extra-point try. The committee’s meetings this weekend included preliminary talks about placing the ball at the 25-yard line for the extra-point kick — which would make it a 42-yard attempt — rather than the 2-yard line, where it is currently placed.”

There was talk that the NFL could eliminate the extra-point entirely. Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “The extra-point is almost automatic… and you want to add excitement with every play.”

Some ideas to add excitement include letting the player that scores do the kicking, making the attempt blindfolded, exploding footballs and every team having their own Air Bud.
