Compute Series Conversion Information from Play by Play

Description

A "Series" begins on a 1st and 10 and each team attempts to either earn a new 1st down (on offense) or prevent the offense from converting a new 1st down (on defense). Series conversion rate represents how many series have been either converted to a new 1st down or ended in a touchdown. This function computes series conversion rates on offense and defense from nflverse play-by-play data along with other series results. The function automatically removes series that ended in a QB kneel down.

Usage
