Real Sports correspondent Bernard Goldberg makes funny faces throughout the segment as he plays dumb to Urschel flexing his math muscles.
HBO's segment begins with Urschel explaining that a football team — facing a 14-point deficit in the final two minutes — should go for a 2-point conversion if it scores a touchdown, so long as its conversion rate is greater than 38 percent. It's an interesting theorem, considering a team has a better-than-average chance of converting at least one of the two tries, and if it converts the first one it can put itself in position for a game-winning score.
This isn't explored much further, but maybe typically aggressive coach John Harbaugh will reserve a spot for Urschel on the analytics team, if not on the starting offensive line.
Also in the piece we learn Urschel has a chalk board in his bedroom, and that he gave fellow lineman Jeremy Zuttah two math books for Christmas.
And that quarterback Joe Flacco isn't all that impressed with Urschel's math ability.
