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.
NFL owners approved a change to extra point: Kicks from the 15, 2-point conversions stay at the 2, source says.

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.
The extra point rule for 2015 just changed. Snap for kick from the 15-yard line, 2-pt try stays at 2-yard line and defense can return.

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