Ravens Vs. Jaguars: Both Teams Stink In Red Zone

New, comments

It's no secret the Jacksonville Jaguars stink in the red zone and scoring points. A dirty little secret about the Baltimore Ravens who come to town on Monday however, is they also stink in the red zone. The Ravens currently average 29.6 points per game, which ranks them 9th in the NFL in scoring. The Ravens also rank 29th in the NFL in red zone scoring.

"We've got to get better in the red zone," Ravens coach John Harbaugh told the media. "We're happy with the field goals, but we're not happy with the fact they weren't touchdowns down there those other times. That's something we have to do better with."

In 19 redzone chances this season, the Ravens have been forced to settle for 10 field goals and have scored just 7 touchdowns. This is pretty surprising to me, considering some of the weapons the Ravens have on their offense. Running back Ray Rice is every bit as dangers as someone like the Jaguars own Maurice Jones-Drew. Wide receiver Anquan Boldin is a big wide receiver who's good an boxing out defenders, going over the middle, and breaking tackles.
