NFL Game Changers: Fourth-And-One Situations
In fourth-and-one situations, the offense or defense must not only overpower its opponent but also outsmart it in order to retain or gain possession. It is an art that must be studied for mastery.
"Something big is going to happen," says NFL Network analyst and former NFL head coach BRIAN BILLICK. "Either you're going to convert in a crucial situation that keeps a drive alive or you get stopped. It's either a huge emotional lift for your team or a huge emotional drain."
The Oakland Raiders converted all four of their NFL Game Changers: Fourth-And-One Situations last season, finishing as the only team with a perfect mark in the category (minimum four attempts).
The Cincinnati Bengals converted five of their six fourth-down conversions, finishing second in the league with an 83.3 percent success rate.
