A Look At The Falcons Red Zone Performance: Week 11

This post is sponsored by Comcast and their NFL RedZone channel.  If you're looking to check out red zone action as it happens,  then you need Comcast's NFL RedZone. If you don't, your life will mean nothing.

As you might expect considering that the Falcons scored 31 points this past week, their red zone performance was generally pretty good yet again. Just outside of that and a little further down the field, they were absolutely atrocious. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

The Falcons managed four touchdowns, a field goal and a missed field goal inside the red zone, which accounted once more for all of their scoring for the entire game. Our efficiency in the red zone is truly a grand thing to behold, but it's beginning to look like we just can't get those long scores that can change the tide of a game, as we're typically methodically moving down the field. Hard to complain anytime you score 31 points, but it's definitely an issue.

Against the Bucs, hopefully the team will continue to get things done when they find themselves inside the 20, and hopefully we see a couple of daring strikes downfield that pay off. That'd be a nice balance.
