Members of the NFL Competition Committee are reportedly considering a significantly longer distance for extra-point kicks to spice up the game.
With 99.6 percent of kick attempts ending in success—kickers only missed five of 1,267 attempts last season—when the ball is spotted at the 2-yeard line, committee members are in talks to extend the ball placement to as far as the 25-yard line, NFL.com reports. That would make extra points the equivalent of 42-yard field goals.
Nothing is set in stone. A committee member told NFL.com that “We could experiment in preseason, but we are not there yet.”
