Rule Changes for Kicks

About the Blog

This week, NFL team owners voted on two rule changes that will implicate the kicking game.  Although no permanent changes were made to extra points as had been discussed, there will be a temporary change during the first two full weeks of the preseason.  Those attempts will be pushed back to the 20 yard line, making it a 37 yard kick.  The other change is to the uprights which will go from 30 feet tall to 35 feet tall going forward.
