The most automatic play in football might be coming to an end, according to a CBS Sports report.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that the league is considering a proposal to eliminate extra points.
"The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell said, via NFL.com. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd. So it's a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play."
Goodell's right about the missed extra points. There were only five missed all season and four of those were blocked. But that begs the question, what would the NFL do to replace extra points?
