Report: NFL Owners Approve Extra Point Changes

According to multiple reports, the NFL will make changes to post-touchdown scoring. The extra point, considered nearly automatic, will be moved back to the 15-yard line for teams attempting to kick for one additional point. For teams that want to try for two additional points, the ball will stay on the two-yard line as it has in the past.

In addition to the offensive changes, defenses are now allowed to earn points. Should they return the two-point conversion for a touchdown, they will receive two points.

According to Mike Garafolo, only the Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins voted against the change.
