The NFL has discussed changes in extra points to make the kicks more difficult and experimented with longer tries during the preseason.
For Sunday’s Pro Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium, the uprights will be narrowed from 18.6 to 14 feet on extra-point tries. The kick also will be moved back from the 2 to the 15, making it essentially a 33 1/2-yard field goal.
NFL kickers made 99.6 percent of their PAT tries in 2013 and 99.3 this season.
NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent made the announcement during a Pro Bowl news conference on Tuesday.
