Summarize your bug When playing on offline CFM, whether you are on offense or defense, after usering and either scoring a touchdown or giving up a touchdown and then slow sim the PAT kick, it will line the ball up at the 28 yard line instead of the 15. If you take too long, then it will line the kick up at the 41 yard line.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Going on offense, drive down and score, and then slow sim the PAT. It happens every time so it should be easy to find it.
What happens when the bug occurs? It will line the PAT at the 28 yard line and sometimes at the 41 yard line.
What do you expect to see? The ball to be lined up at the 15 yard line.
If your game crashed, about how many minutes were you playing before it crashed?

This glitch is not major as most of the time it only moves the field goal back to the 28 yard line which is still in distance for kickers, but it still ruins the immersion. Sometimes it will line the PAT up at the 41 yard line. Not sure what causes it to be lined up at the 41, but I think it occurs when you do not skip the replays of the touchdown, let the Choose Play menu come up without skipping, and then slow simming the PAT.
I like to slow sim my franchise games because I use it as background noise while doing work. I do sometimes take over on offense if I feel like we need a drive or better execution. If I score a touchdown, I usually instantly slow sim the PAT and the rest of the game until the game is over or I feel I need to take back over. If I slow sim the PAT, it's guaranteed to line the ball up at the 28 yard line or occasionally the 41 yard line.
I'm about to try to replicate the glitches and try to record clips of the game lining the ball up at both yard lines. So any devs or moderators, please check back later for the videos.
Here is a clip of the ball being lined up at the 28 yard line after scoring a touchdown and slow simming the PAT kick. Notice that the sim is on slow and that the yard line goes from the 2 yard line, to the 15, to the 28 yard line.

Are you getting any penalties?
Delay of game/False start?
Nope, as seen in the video in the link, it just automatically moves the spot of the ball to the 28 every time I slow sim the PAT. If it is, then there's simply an issue with an automatic penalty occurring every time you slow sim it and that penalty not being shown in game.
