Actually, that is the rule for a rouge on a field goal attempt, although not for a field goal. For a few years, it was the rule for both, but it discouraged long field goals.
[b]RULE 3 - SCORING
SECTION 2 – DEFINITIONS
Article 2 – Field Goal[/b]
After a field goal, the team scored against may scrimmage or kickoff from its own 35 yard line or require the scoring team to kickoff from its 35 yard line.
A team scoring a field goal on a play that started after the 3 minute warning has been given in the 4th quarter will kickoff from their own 35 yard line.
Article 4 — Single Point Or Rouge
After a rouge, the team scored against shall next put the ball into play by a scrimmage as first down at any point between the hash marks on its 35-yard line.
If the single point was scored as the result of an unsuccessful field goal attempt, the team scored against may elect to scrimmage the ball at any point between the hash marks on its own 35-yard line or at the previous line of scrimmage.
Interesting that the team scored against with a field goal also has the option of kicking off to the team that just scored. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a team use that option. And I can’t think of any reason why a team would elect to do so.
