I think it does eliminate the possibility of a couple breaks per game
imo they're only talking about this move to bring back some of the action & excitement to the game that they lost when they did what they did to kickoffs....essentially making them touchback fests.

I have no proof, but i'm guessing that those kinds of 1 off excitement plays (like TDs) are more apt to catch & draw in a novice viewer as opposed to watching a guy kick an extra point or watching the drive that led up to the TD..or watching the actual games...Basically they're trying to extend the excitement of a TD play.
