If the defense gets the ball in the field of play on a conversion attemp, and then a defensive player takes the ball into his own end zone and is tackled, the result will be a one-point safety: The offensive team will get one point. That has never happened before in NFL history.May 22, 2015
Bottom line: teams should go for two points when they score a touchdown and they are down 10, 8, 3, or 2 or up by 1, 2, 4, or 5 (including the points from scoring the touchdown) near the end of the game. These conclusions hold when there are at least two additional possessions in…
Because it’s an extra point attempt, and not a play from scrimmage or a timed down, it’s only scored as an attempt or conversion. No stats for the play are recorded — no passing, rushing or receiving yards, fumble, sack or interception is credited during a two-point conversion.Dec 5, 2016
A two point conversion nets two points, whereas kicking an extra point only gains a team one point.

In a two-point conversion attempt, the team that just scored must run a play from close to the opponent’s goal line (5-yard line in Canadian, 3-yard line in amateur American, 2-yard line in professional American) and advance the ball across the goal line in the same manner as if they were scoring a touchdown.

The conversion, try (American football, also known as a point(s) after touchdown, PAT, or (depending on the number of points) extra point/2-point conversion), or convert (Canadian football) occurs immediately after a touchdown during which the scoring team is allowed to attempt to score one extra point by kicking the
In football, when a two point conversion gets intercepted, the opposing team will have the opportunity to score an additional two points if they are able to return the ball to the opposite end zone and the ball will be kicked back to them afterwards.Jan 16, 2021
After a touchdown, an NFL team has two options: It can attempt a point-after kick, which if successful adds one point to their score; or it can attempt a two-point conversion, which functions like a basic offensive play where the team needs to find the end zone (like on a touchdown) to earn the two…
The NFL adopted the two-point conversion rule in 1994, 25 years after the merger. The NFL’s developmental league, NFL Europe (and its former entity, the World League of American Football), adopted the two-point conversion rule for its entire existence from 1991 through 2007.
