Next year, the NFL is extending goal posts by five feet as reported by ESPN Boston. But for Patriots fan's that five feet comes years too late.

All Patriots fans can remember the kick two years ago against the Ravens, when Justin Tucker kicked it up and it went over the goal post. The kick was good, and it was anything but good news for the Patriots. If this rule was in place when that kick went up, then it would of probably hit, and its anyone's guess from that point. But today, the kicker himself, Justin Tucker chimed in on Twitter to give his thoughts:

We all remember what happened after the kick. Wilfork got pissed, and Belichick was fined $5,000 for the almighty grabbing of the referee.

When the goal posts are extended this upcoming year, it may change a few games, or maybe just one. Either way we now have a "Tucker Rule"
