Aaron Rodgers Not a Fan of the New PAT Rule in the NFL


Count NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers among those who don’t like the new extra-point rule in the NFL, Rob Demovsky of

“I think it goes against the league stance on player safety,” Rodgers said Tuesday.

Rodgers doesn’t deny that it could make the game more exciting, both strategically if more coaches opt to go for two and also because the ball is now live.

“It’s now become a very important play, especially in the winter time in Green Bay, when no field goal is guaranteed,” Rodgers said. “And it doesn’t go for just Green Bay. Any place that is cold or has rain or inclement weather, it’s going to be an interesting decision. Do you go for the two-pointer from the 2 or do you go for a 33-yard field goal?

“And with that, the play’s not dead anymore. If there’s an interception or a fumble, you can return it. So I think you’re bringing some player-safety issues involved into that play. It could make it more exciting, but I still like the one-pointer from where it was at.”
