NFL to place microchips in footballs during preseason

Posted: Updated:

The NFL will reportedly turn to technology to look for ways to make extra points and field goals more difficult.

The league plans to place microchips in footballs during the preseason games this season. The microchips will give the NFL data on how far the ball travels, and a ball's proximity to the goal posts.

The league is considering narrowing the uprights to make the kicking game more challenging.
