Bergen County, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2014 -- The NFL Competition Committee has been discussing changing the distance of the extra point kick. The committee is talking about placing the ball at the 25-yard line, instead of the 2-yard line. That change would make the extra point attempt a 42-yard attempt.
Avid sports fan Anthony Amado isn’t quite sure what to think about the topic. “Increasing the distance of the extra point kick would add a new dynamic to the game. I’m not sure if that would be a good dynamic or not” Amado said.
According to a committee member of the 1,267 extra points kicked last season, only 5 missed the target. The league doesn’t want to give points away. The idea is definitely still only in the theoretical stage.
