Stoplight turn red when equal or greater than due date

I am a relatively new smartsheet user.  I am using this formula to turn a stoplight red, yellow, green based on the proximity of the due date. The yellow and green portion is working as desired, but the Red is not.  I want the health to turn “Red” if the due date is = or greater than TODAY. For some reason, it’s only turning Red after 7 days.


=IF([Draft Due Date]@row - 5 < TODAY(), "Yellow", IF([Draft Due Date]@row = TODAY(), "Red", "Green"))


Thank you!
