Extra point rule up for vote at NFL owners meetings

The NFL is debating changing the extra point rule. There are three dueling proposals. The Philadelphia Eagles want to move the two-point conversion from the 2-yard line to the 1-yard line. They want the defense to have the opportunity to score two points by returning a blocked kick, fumble or interception. They want the extra point to be moved to the 15-yard line, making it the equivalent of a 33-yard field goal. The competition committee has the same proposal except the two-point conversion would remain at the 2-yard line. The New England Patriots' proposal is the same as the competition committee except the defense can't score. Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
