Extra Points Moved to the 15-Yard Line

About the Blog

Yesterday, the NFL approved a proposal to change the rule on extra point attempts.  Instead of a kick from the two-yard line, kicks will now take place from the 15-yard line.  Two point conversions will still be taken from the two, but now defenses can return a two-point attempt and blocked extra points can also be returned for two points.

The rule, which passed 30-2 with only Oakland and Washington voting against it, is just for the 2015 season.  As such, more changes could be made in the future.
