Quantcast


Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says his offense will continue to go for two-point conversions often.

"Oh, we're going to keep doing it," Roethlisberger said. "We don't practice it this much to not do it. We practice it every single day. ... I tried to tell you guys early on that we would do it, and I think you guys kind of didn't quite believe it. But it's something we feel comfortable with."

As Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com points out, the Steelers are 3-for-3 on two-point conversions this season. This comes on the heels of newly acquired kicker Josh Scobee having a terrible debut with the Steelers on opening night against the Patriots in which he missed two long field goals.

Scobee, in last Sunday's game against the 49ers, missed his first extra point attempt in the second quarter. The NFL moved extra point attempts back to the 15-yard line in hopes that it would make games more interesting. So far this season, nine extra point attempts have been missed. Only eight were missed all of last season.
