NFL Handicapping: Steelers and Packers eager for more 2-point attempts

06.16.2016     10:11 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Heading into last season, the Pittsburgh Steelers said that they were going to be ultra-aggressive with the 2-point conversion. Despite losing Ben Roethlisberger to injury for a handful of games, the Steelers led the league in attempts (11) and conversions (8) during the regular season. On at least one occasion it impacted the pointspread. In Pittsburgh's Wild Card Round game at Cincinnati, it failed on a 2-point attempt and ended up winning 18-16 as -2 favorites. This season, Roethlisberger feels the team should go for two after every touchdown.

Green Bay, though not as gung-ho, says it will go for two more frequently as well. The Packers converted on 4-of-6 attempts during the regular season and 1-for-1 in the playoffs.
