The NFL could be changing the extra point for good. According to Packers president Mark Murphy, the league will have to vote on the change and to make it permanent they will need 24 votes to make it stick.
“Last year’s change was only for one year, so the rule will be voted on again this year,” Murphy said in a monthly mailbag column at the team’s official website. “I anticipate that it will become permanent.”
The extra point percentage dropped from 99.4 percent to 94 percent. It was more interesting and even Murphy was surprised that more teams did not go for two.
“I was a little surprised that more teams did not go for two points with the new rule,” Murphy writes.
