Correct, Jake. But before they moved it back, it was less than 1%. It's obviously made a difference and it's not so automatic anymore.

Strange rigidity. I don’t understand why the rules couldn’t be different to end the game than end the half. That happens in baseball—once the home team has clinched the game in the bottom of the ninth or extra innings they don’t play three outs. The game is over. Not doing the PAT when up by more than 2 is exactly the same idea.

Ah, true. That still doesn't address why they change in OT. Or why there is a need to force rules into a box when there is a clearly logical reason for them to differ based on the situation. I don't have a strong opinion on the PAT either way, but I don't like the idea of rules being so regimented that clear common sense can't allow them to change.

If you're going to change a rule, you could change the rule that says rules have to be the same for each half just as easily. That being said, I don't see this one changing any time soon.

i think if you fake the long xp and get in the endzone it should be worth 3-4 points as well. If you just go for the straight 2 you have the ball much closer to the end zone.

If you think it's a waste of time, turn off the TV or leave the stadium. Those 1-2 points can mean a lot if you are betting against the spread or have a tight fantasy matchup.

If they are taking a knee on the XP like they did in the raiders/eagles game and in the last game before than when it happened its a waste of time for the betters/fantasy people as well

glad they took everyone off the field in the minn game to kick the XP and delay the ending of game for 10 minutes

makes perfect sense...and crazy for me to question it


'most anticlimactic moment in history of nfl' joe bucks say..

they just down the ball anyway ..and saints had their punter on the xp blocking unit..

still everyone will disagree with me and I not make sense on this issue...

The line was vikings -5.5

Had to have been some Vegas pressure to run the play.

I wouldn't be surprised if they change the rule for next year.
