Do you like to play in football box pools, especially in the Super Bowl? Are you curious about how the NFL's rule changes on extra points (both kicks and two-point attempts) are changing typical final scores? Good news! Greg Guglielmo at Eldo.co has researched the answers to those exact questions, and put together graphs that show just how weird scores have been in the past two years compared to prior seasons.

Do people call these box pools? In Boston I've always heard them called squares

That was why I clicked on this, I had never heard of Box Pools. But I have entered 2 squares pools this year.
