Owners To Consider Extra Point Proposals

The NFL’s spring meetings are scheduled to take place in San Francisco next week, and league owners will consider three alternatives to the current extra point play at those meetings, according to an Associated Press report.

The three proposals, put forth by the Patriots, the Eagles, and the league’s competition committee, are fairly similar, with a few minor tweaks. They are as follows:

  1. Patriots: One-point attempts (kicks) from the 15-yard line; two-point attempts from the two-yard line.
  2. Eagles: One-point attempts (kicks) from the 15-yard line; two-point attempts from the one-yard line; defense can score two points if it returns a turnover to the opposing end zone.
  3. Competition committee: One-point attempts (kicks) from the 15-yard line; two-point attempts from the two-yard line; defense can score two points if it returns a turnover to the opposing end zone.

For any of the proposals to replace the current extra point play, it would require 75% of the league’s owners (24 of 32) to approve a change.
