In the modern game, kicking is still very much an integral part of the NFL. Sports betting professionals
actually conducted research on the subject, analyzing extra point attempts.
From the 1990 to 2011 seasons, 22 seasons in total, there were 23,684 extra point attempts (PATs) during the regular season. Of these, a total of 23,325 were successfully made (98.48%).
In total, only 359 times has a kicker missed the PAT. Breaking this number down further, we found that 103 were blocked, while kickers missed 256.
Between 1990 and 2011, the greatest number of PATs missed by a team in a single season is - the 1991 Houston Oilers went 41 of 46 (89.1%). The worst season performance by a team goes to the 1993 Cincinnati Bengals, who only hit 81.3% of their PATs, going 13 for 16. These were all pure misses (not blocked).
