ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Arena Football League is gone, leaving a smattering of players good enough for the NFL - and one quiet legacy that plays itself out every week in stadiums across the country.

A league-wide survey by The Associated Press found that a dozen NFL kickers use the narrower goal posts like those from the old indoor league to practice their craft during the week so that when game day comes, the uprights seem so much wider.

It's a tactic coach Josh McDaniels and long snapper Lonie Paxton brought with them from New England to Denver and a trick Broncos kicker Matt Prater credits for his bounce-back season after fading down the stretch a year ago.
