Giants kicker Josh Brown nails first 33-yard PAT in NFL history
The NFL experiment for longer point after attempts is a success after one attempt.
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.
The league-wide success rate on FG attempts 30 to 39 yards last season was 89.8 percent. The experiment will be a 33-yard extra point.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) August 3, 2014
Brown, though, had no problem with the extra distance, blasting it straight through the uprights.
