It didn't work out for the Giants, but from a win probability perspective Ben McAdoo clearly made the correct decision to go for it on 4th-and-goal from the one-yard line near the end of the half. At the time of the choice, the Giants had a 30% chance to win if they went for it, but only a 25% chance to win if they elected to attempt a field goal. The Giants needed a 33% chance to convert for it to be worth going for it, and league average in that situation is 56.6%.
