"Buckle up.Your NFL experience is about to change.Extra points have gone from 20 to 33-yard kicks. Even if most kickers make 90 percent of their 33 yarders, that means about once every four games an extra point will be missed. Compare that to about once per season, if that, and you have what’s called a game changer.The league didn’t go as far as putting the ball at the one or one-and-a-half yard line for two point conversion attempts.

Washington Redskins RUMORS: Would RGIII Ever Go To The Houston Texans? – By Brandon Katz of Headlines & Global News

"We have no clue if quarterback Robert Griffin III is going to be on the Washington Redskins’ roster next season. Yes, new Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan exercised the club’s fifth-year option on RGIII that will pay him around $16 million in 2016. But it’s just as likely that the Skins will part ways with the talented yet embattled QB if he has a bad season this year.If that happens, where would Griffin end up? In a piece based purely on hypotheticals, Grantland’s Robert Mays offered up the Houston Texans as a possible landing spot."
