Garrett: Cowboys unlikely to change strategy given new PAT rule

The NFL has installed a new rule that will turn an extra point attempt into a 33-yarder, and some in the media have speculated that teams will begin to attempt more two-point conversions in response to the ruling.

Rantings from the redhead: Rule change for Dallas Cowboys’ Dan Bailey?

These will be the words of a confused Dan Bailey. For those reading this who don’t know, the NFL has made a change in the process of the extra point. The ball will now be spotted at the 15 yard-line, making the total distance of a kick 33 yards. Personally, I think it’s a pretty dumb and useless change. What’s next Roger Goodell? Change the referee’s shirts to have horizontal...

Dan Bailey: The new PAT requires the same skill set

Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey has been one of the most accurate kickers in the NFL over the last few seasons. He is not disappointed with the NFL's new rule to move the distance for an extra point from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line, but he is confused.  "I think there was talk that they wanted to add, quote, 'skill,' to the kick," Bailey told Todd Archer of ESPN.com.

New PAT Rules Shouldn't Be a Problem for Dan Bailey

The NFL came out today with changes to be made to arguably the least interesting part of a football game: the point-after-touchdown kick from the one.

It has now been moved to the 15-yard line, a 32-yard field goal with around 90% success, in order to make the kick more exciting.However, this change...

NFL Approves Extra Point Rule Change

At the NFL Owners annual spring meeting a new rule was passed 30-2 in favor of moving the extra point to the 15-yard line from the previous spot of the 2-yard line. The rule change will go into effect this year, so after each TD, the extra point will be a glorified 32-33 yard field goal kick.  This change will put a bit more pressure on kickers to make the extra point. Thankfully...

The Pregame Huddle: Week 10

Through the first half of the season, West Virginia receiver Kevin White had been the Big 12's most unstoppable talent.  Then Oklahoma State stopped him, and his streak of seven consecutive 100-yard receiving games, which broke Stedman Bailey's record. If TCU is going to continue its run to the Big 12 title, it better slow down White, too. This week, coach Mike Gundy and cornerback...
