  • Lol!!! When is a TD only worth 4 points?

    Watching the Arkansas vs Kansas State Game. It was 13-0 Hogs when their QB threw a 45 yard Td pass on 3rd and long. That made it 19-0.

    So u asked how can they only Net 4 pts off a TD?

    Hogs lined up for the extra point and had it blocked. It was scooped up and brought back all the way to the house. That's worth 2 points. That made it 19-2 instead of 20-0.
    Talk about two points the hard way. Lol
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    In the old days, the value of a touchdown was only 4 points.

      If it was 13-0 and they scored a touchdown which makes it 19-0 cause 13+6= 19 plus the extra point was blocked.

      Where do you get the four from?

        Ok I will explain..... They were up by 13 prior to the Td. After the extra point try they were up 17. 13+4 equals 17. U are right the td was worth 6 but the extra point try was blocked and the other team took it to the house for 2 points. So it was not 6+1 like usual. It wound up 6-2=4.
        So the whole sequence netted the Hogs a total of 4 points...

        I realize the thread was a play on words and understand your point.. A td isn't worth just 4 pts....

        Guess its almost like a 14 pt turnaround somewhat. U are on a teams goal line down 7 about to tie it. U fumble and they return it for a td. Now instead of being tied u are down 14. Not the same but just trying to help u out. Lol
