NFL Extra Point Experiment Becomes Permanent

About the Blog

For the 2015 season, the NFL changed extra points by moving the snap to the 15-yard line, creating a longer attempt for kickers.  The change was intended for one year, but the NFL announced Tuesday that the change will be a permanent one.

The new rule took the extra point conversion percentage from 99.4 to 94 percent, as kickers missed a total of 71 extra points.  This change also keeps in the place the rule that allowed a defensive player to return a missed extra point attempt for two points.
