So if you miss the 2-pointer, you're down by 2. Opponent scores a TD in the 4th quarter, now you're down by 9, meaning 2 scores. Whereas you could've been down by only 8 and 1 score had you just kicked the XP earlier.

You're wrong. Sorry.

Yeah too bad it doesn't get called both ways. That's the most frustrating thing about crap calls like that. Ticky tack hand on a guy gets called, then texan defender is all over the colts guy before the ball gets there and nothing...smh

Dierdorf doesn't bother me much cause his voice brings back memories as a kid watching MNF. Gumbel on the other hand is pathetic

Oh I fully understand the mathematical dangers of going for 2. But to say I am wrong is just your opinion. Cite a study or a link that shows going for 1 (or 2) is the correct call.

Houston is not going into the playoffs on a roll, regardless if they win. They have some issues.

Honestly, I doubt such a study even exists. There isn't enough data due to the fact that it is so rare for a team to go for 2 before the 4th quarter (unless they're down by like 4 TD). That in itself is proof that kicking the XP is the right call.

You never know what is going to happen later in the game score-wise, whether it be FG's or TD's, and by which team. Take the guaranteed points and go for 2 only when necessary. I guess it's just coincidence that "my opinion" just happens to be shared by virtually every football coach in existence?

It's not even that....Early 3rd quarter is waaaaay to early to start chasing points.

PAT = Down 14-13...Hold the oppo to a FG + score a TD = 20-17 where another oppo FG only ties.

Missed 2PC = 14-12 and then 19-17 in the above scenario where a late FG beats you.

That's Vine for you though.

No where on that chart does it say "wait for 4th quarter" to start following chart.

In my experiences of watching football, I would guesstimate that teams go for 2 in about 1/2 the pre-4th quarter situations as the Texans faced earlier in the game. Certainly not close to the "rare" instance, or "virtually" every coach as you claim kicks that extra point.
