According to Next Gen Stats:
Broncos chance of making 1st down on 4th & 5 last night: 42%. Sure,
not great, but chance of making a 64 yard FG? 14% Not even sure how
that one is calculated since 66 is the longest and that was in a dome.
63 next longest. Several of those, but most are in high altitude, in
domes, or with wind at the back. Over 63 never made in an open air sea
level stadium.
Way to cost your team roughly 30 percentage points in chance of winning, Coach Hackett.

Way to cost your team roughly 30 percentage points in chance of winning, Coach Hackett.see my post on the topic- the comparison isn't between the chances of making 4th and 5 vs kicking a 64 yard field goal.
The comparison is between the chances of kicking a 64 yard field goal vs making 4th and 5 *and* then kicking a field goal after that(of undetermined length....maybe 40 yards, maybe 59 yards)
The actual winning % expectation numbers between the two decisions were actually very close. I would have gone for it, but either
decision was reasonable based on the analytics.

I think the chances are even lower. I'm not quite sure how you make that calculation. Obviously, a bunch more 60+ yard FGs have been made recently, but the only two over 63 are Justin Tucker's 66 yarder in the Silverdome and Matt Prater's 64 yarder atWay to cost your team roughly 30 percentage points in chance of winning, Coach Hackett.see my post on the topic- the comparison isn't between the chances of making 4th and 5 vs kicking a 64 yard field goal.

I would have gone for it, but eitherYes, I should have added the percentage of success after the 4th down, so it's significantly lower than the 42% chance they had of making the 4th and 5. However, I'm not sure the FG is even 14% chance of being made. In Denver? Probably. In Seattle? No,
