http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap20...-considering-proposal-to-abolish-extra-points TL;DR The NFL is thinking about kicking the extra point; and potentially making it where you can still go for two and end up with eight points, or down to six if you miss. Personally, I don't like the idea of scores going up to 8. I think that the integrity of the game gets compromised when you deal with scoring changes. However, I would not mind seeing the extra point going away. It is largely automatic, the other team cannot score if blocked, and it would minimize injuries. More importantly, we wouldn't waste time seeing a boring play.
