# The rows are labeled by the lead after scoring a touchdown.

The columns are labeled by the amount of time remaining
in the game. Example: after scoring a touchdown you trail by 5 points, with 21:00 remaining in the game (i.e. 6:00 left
in the 3rd quarter). In the row corresponding to minus 5, and the column corresponding to 21:00, the entry is 0.31. This
means you should attempt a two-point conversion if your probability of making it exceeds 0.31. NFL teams make
about 40% of their two-point conversions, or perhaps a bit more. So when trailing by 5 with 21:00 to play, going for
two is the correct play.
