|How many yards do you add to a field goal attempt to find it's true distance in the NFL?|
Assuming you are talking about adding to the line of scrimmage, it is usually 17 yards. For example, if the ball is on the 30 yard line it will normally be a 47 yard attempt (kicked from the 37, and add 10 for the end zone). However the statistics already reflect that additional 17 yards. If a field goal is recorded as 35 yards, it is truly 35 yards, not 35 + 17 or 52.
17, 7 yard snap and a 10 yard end zone.
10 for the depth of the endzone. and either 7 or 8 for the distance between the line of scrimmage and the holder. so 17 or 18
17 but only if you assume they hike the ball back 7 yards. I've been told this is not always the case and that Elam's field goal to tie the record was snapped back only 6 yards.
10 yards for the endzone and then an extra 7 or 8 for the holder so about 17 or 18 yards.
10 yards for length of the end zone, and another 7 or 8 yards from the placement of the snap...
From the point of the holder to the goalpost 17 yards
The unlucky 13yrds . Factoid.
10 yds for the endzone plus 5 extra for the holder to hold the ball
