(CBS Sports.com) – The most automatic play in football, the extra point, could be coming to an end. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Monday that the league is considering a proposal to eliminate the PAT (point after touchdown).

“The extra point is almost automatic,” Goodell said, in an interview with  NFL.com. “I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd. So it’s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play.”

“There’s one proposal in particular that I’ve heard about,” Goodell said. “It’s automatic that you get seven points when you score a touchdown, but you could potentially go for an eighth point, either by running or passing the ball, so if you fail, you go back to six.”
