I will never understand why a dead ball foul after a touchdown is enforced on the ensuing kickoff, and not immediately enforced on the extra point. 

Turning an extra point into a 47 yard field goal, or a 17 yard 2 point conversion try, seems like a much better punishment than simply moving a kickoff back.

As a huge Mayfield fan, I’m conflicted. I want to see Mayfield lead an epic comeback. But I also enjoy seeing the Browns lose, just because the joke that is Hue Jackson never gets old.

Penalty on the kicking team means you're giving the other team potentially much better field position on the next drive. Penalty on 1-2 point try means very little.

Home team now 3-0 on TNF. Hopefully we can make that 3-1 next Thursday.

I ALWAYS pick the home team on Thursdays.....but I broke my own rule last night (because Cleveland). Might have to break it again next week.

Potentially affecting the score >>>>>>> potentially affecting field position

potentially affecting field position  ≠   Moving the kick back 15 yards.

Kicking from 15 yards deeper almost certainly (not potentially) will effect field position.

I don't know whether 15 yards of field position has more of a an incremental effect on score on average than the average change in likelihood of scoring the PAT from 15 yards further back. I am sure the data exists if someone wants to mine it. I don't care enough myself to mine the data.
