Even before the first quarter of the Hall of Fame game between the Bills and Giants had ended Sunday, New York placekicker Josh Brown already had made history.

That's because he became the first kicker in NFL history to attempt a 33-yard extra point. And he nailed it.

After New York scored its first points of the exhibition season on an Andre Williams 3-yard rushing touchdown, the Giants special teams set up at the 15-yard line, instead of the normal 2-yard line. That's because the NFL is experimenting through the first two weeks of preseason games with longer extra points in order to make a successful conversion a little less automatic.

Makes sense, especially when you consider last year's PAT attempts had a 99.6 success rate.

Brown, though, had no problem with the extra distance, blasting it straight through the uprights.
