Our red zone offense in general is putrid. I hope they open it up this week down there. Figure out a way to score in the red zone. If we can do that. I think we can win. We are only holding ourselves back. We've beaten some respectable teams without a very complete offense. The potential is there. We just have to put it together to get the ball rolling for the rest of the season. It needs to start now.. against the Ravens, who could very well end up winning their division OR being in the race for the Wild Card. We need to win the head to head if the ladder is the case.
Yep, you're exactly right. Matchups against teams like the Steelers, Ravens, and Titans are the games that we need to win if we want to come away with a critical tie breaker later this year. Even more critical are the divisional matchups we have with the Jets, Patriots, and Bills later in the year. I think our team is very capable of winning ten or eleven games this season. But what will decide whether we make the playoffs or not is how we play straight up with the other teams that will have similar records. The sad truth is that we could win eleven games this year and not make the playoffs. That is why these head to head matchups are critical.
