Just your standard 48-yard extra point in Browns-Jets

AP

The new extra-point rule yielded a new record following the first touchdown of the Browns-Jets game Sunday.

After Johnny Manziel threw a 54-yard touchdown pass to Travis Benjamin, rookie kicker Travis Coons tried a 33-yard extra point kick, per the new rule.

Coons made it, but it was negated by an illegal formation call on Mitchell Schwartz. Coons then made another one from 38 yards, but it was negated by a holding call on Armonty Bryant, backing the Browns up 10 more yards.

On the third try, Coons made the 48-yarder with ease.

The 48-yard extra point was part of a wild start that included Browns starting quarterback Josh McCown suffering a concussion at the end of a long first drive, Johnny Manziel coming in and throwing a 54-yard touchdown pass, Brandon Marshall stripping the ball from Browns safety Tashaun Gipson after Gipson had recorded and interception and early injuries to Antonio Cromartie and Browns starting linebacker Scott Solomon, who was carted off on the first drive of his first NFL start.

    At that point going for 2 has to make more sense…

    Stop whining about the Pats. Let it go and it will end.

    Why would they go for 2 from the 31 yard line? Even a 48yd extra point is a better option.

    Going for 2 doesn’t negate the penalties. You’d be going for 2 from the 17 yard line.
