NFL likely to change Extra Point format

PHOENIX (AP) - NFL owners head into their final day of a busy set of meetings with plenty more work to do.

After a flurry of votes and news, several more items on this week's agenda remain.

A change in overtime that would require both sides to have a possession even if the team receiving the kickoff scores a touchdown is on the table.

So is moving the extra point kick back to the 15-yard line, and a scenario that gives teams that successfully convert a 2-point conversion the chance to immediately add another point from midfield with a "bonus field goal."

Indianapolis came up with the latter which, if approved, would make a nine-point deficit a one-possession game.

The Colts also have proposed allowing host teams to open a retractable roof at halftime, weather permitting, to enhance fan experience.
