Unlike math genius Urschel, Ravens' Harbaugh expects more two-point conversions

Ravens coach John Harbaugh thinks longer extra point this season will lead to more two-point conversions, but he may want to consult with one of his offensive lineman first. "It is going to encourage more two-point conversion tries," Harbaugh said Thursday per The Baltimore Sun. "There's no question about it, especially in windy stadiums.

Ravens' math genius Urschel calculates effects of extra point change

Thinking that the extra point moving back 13 yards will result in more two-point conversions? Think again, says Ravens offensive lineman John Urschel. If you're now thinking how a backup offensive lineman could possibly have any special insight into the NFL's latest rule change, think again, again. Urschel is a mathematician in his spare time (his Twitter handle is 'MathMeetsFball...

Grades are in, and if John Urschel’s teaching, we failed

The Ravens drafted an offensive lineman in the fifth round.  You know, one of those boneheaded lugs who just stand there and absorb contact all day.  If it weren’t for football, surely his IQ wouldn’t allow him to do much else in society.  Thank goodness he was given that 6-foot-3, 300-pound frame, otherwise, I don’t know what other work he would ever be qualified for...
