What is a two point conversion?

1 Answer

In American and Canadian football, a two-point conversion is a play that a football team elects to attempt after scoring a touchdown instead of kicking a one-point field goal.

To convert a two-point conversion attempt, the team that just scored a touchdown 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 NFL) and get the football across the goal line just as if they were scoring a touchdown (passing or running). If the team succeeds in crossing the goal line, it will get two points, in addition to the six points that are awarded for the touchdown. If the team fails, it does not get two points. Either way, the team always proceeds to kickoff to the other team.
