Not a big deal, but I like to challenge assumptions with data.
Per Google, “Across the 2018 and 2019 NFL seasons, teams converted two-point conversion attempts 49.4 percent of the time. That compares to making the one-point point after kick 94.1 percent of the time.”
Succop hit 52 of 57, or 91.2% this year.
94.1% > 91.2%
Based on those stats, it would actually make sense for the Bucs to go for 2 almost every time, especially since I believe their potent offense could do better than the 49.4% league average from 2018-2019.
All that said, I would have kicked the PAT in that particular situation; nevertheless, there’s a logical argument to be made for going for 2 (especially early in games) and wish we’d do it more often.
Me personally, I don’t buy the analytics/stats based arguments of going for 2 all the time. More often than not, it seems that just leads to chasing points. Perfect example was Colts/Bills, going for it on 4th and skipping on the FG, then later chasing 2pts and missing.
I think teams are better served using 2pt situationally, as opposed to MO.
