Now that the point after touchdown attempt in the NFL makes for a challenging kick, has successive offensive penalties ever taken a team out of range for the PAT?


"Out of range" is subjective, so I will leave it up to the reader to decide.

During the first week of the 2015 season, the Browns converted a 48-yard PAT. According to ESPN, this was the longest PAT since 2001, in which the Cardinals converted a 37-yard PAT.

According to ForTheWin, the Redskins converted a 40-yard PAT in 1987 and is believed to be the longest PAT conversion prior to the rule changes implemented in 2015.
