A Model of a Sudden-Death Field-Goal Football Game as a Sequential Duel
This paper introduces a highly simpliﬁed version of ‘sudden-death’ scoring. The basic game is as follows. With equal probability the teams toss to see who gets the ball. The team with the ball can either run or try to kick a ﬁeld goal. The ﬁrst team to score wins the game.
