Steelers leading the way in the 2-point revolution
By ANDREW AVERY
The Pittsburgh Steelers went for a 2-point conversion following each of their first two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers last week, but you had best get used to it as this could be something we see more and more in the 2015 season.
As Dale Lolley, Steelers beat reporter for the Observer-Reporter, points out, we are on pace for 56 two-point conversion attempts this season. That’s double what we saw in 2014.
But it’s Mike Tomlin and those Steelers that are leading the way, converting all three attempts so far.
Eleven clubs have opted for the 2-pointer instead of the extra point with six successfully converting. Only the Steelers, Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills have attempted more than one.
Furthermore, as Lolley mentioned via Twitter, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said that his club has seven-to-10 two-point conversion plays and that they will continue to use it “on many occasions”.
