NFL teams going for 2-point conversions at a record rate in 2020, but, so far, it’s not paying off for Washington

According to the Associated Press, never before have NFL teams gone for 2-point conversions as often as they have this season. It turns out that the 58 attempts through six weeks are the most at this point in the season since the NFL adopted the 2-point conversion in 1994.

Here’s some detail from Pro Football Talk:

[T]he league {is] on pace to have a total of 161 two-point conversion attempts this season. Last season there were 113 two-point conversion attempts across the league. Last year teams went for two on 8 percent of all touchdowns, while this year teams are going for two on 11 percent of all touchdowns.
