    Despite being of relatively low point value, safeties can have a significant impact on the result of games,[2] and Brian Burke of Advanced NFL Stats estimated that safeties have a greater abstract value than field goals, despite being worth a point less, due to the field position and reclaimed possession gained off the safety kick It comes from the beginnings of football when a team which possessed the ball near its own goal line could down it in the end zone and have the ball placed at the 25 yard line. In 1876, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, and Harvard met to further unify the rulesets (Harvard had not attended the previous meeting due to their commitment to a running/Rugby style of game). The outcome was 61 rules. Here is how they related to scoring: In these rules, the safety was not explicitly stated but it was called a touch-in-goal. A team that has touched down the ball in their own goal were to immediately kick it away. These did not count against the team. In 1882, safeties became part of the scoring, and the tie-break advantage switched from kicks to touchdowns: Four touchdowns takes precedence over a goal from the field (which is worth four touchdowns) Two safeties equals one touchdown This was all part of an overall strategy to increase the pace of the game and eliminate stalling that occurred under the previous rules. Downs were also added at this time. In early 1883, scores were first attached to the various ways of scoring: Safety: 1 point Touchdown: 2 points Goal after touchdown: 4 points Goal from the field: 5 points Later in 1883, scores were further amended: Safety: 2 points Touchdown: 4 points Goal after touchdown: 4 points Goal from the field: 5 points In 1887, scores became: Safety: 2 points Touchdown: 5 points Goal after touchdown: 1 point Goal from the field: 5 points In 1904 and 1909, the goal from the field was reduced to 4, and then 3 points. In 1912, touchdowns became worth 6 points. It comes from the beginnings of football when a team which possessed the ball near its own goal line could down it in the end zone and have the ball placed at the 25 yard line.
