    Football Question

    In the NFL if a team goes for an extra point or two point conversion, and there's a turnover and the other team brings it back into the endzone, what happens? I've always thought nothing but a guy recently told me that they get 2 pts for it. Just wonderin' if anyone knows the answer to this?

    In the NFL, only the offensive team can score on an extra point conversion (or try).

    NFL Rulebook
    2. The defensive team never can score on a try. As soon as defense gets possession or the kick is blocked or a touchdown is not scored, the try is over.

    Your friend may be thinking of the college rule that allows it.

    NCAA Rulebook
    Rule 8
    Section 3
    ARTICLE 2. A try is an opportunity for either team to score one or two
    points while the game clock is stopped and is a special interval in a game
    which, for purposes of penalty enforcement only, includes both a down
    and the “ready’†™ period that precedes it.
