Notes: these are ESTIMATES; please use accordingly. On 4th and 1, the model cannot know whether it's a long 1 or a short 1. Shorter distance would favor going. Do not use this in overtime. Use with EXTREME CAUTION in the final minute of a game as the model is not good with end of game clock scenarios.
