The fixes: turnovers, red zone offense

The Bills have dropped their last two games and there were two areas of their game that stood out in both losses to New Orleans and Kansas City. Head coach Doug Marrone addressed it with his team Wednesday.

“I spoke to the team about what we’re doing well and know we can improve on, but here are the two areas that are really getting us right now,” Marrone said. “One of them is obviously the turnovers. We’re minus-six in the last two games. So we’ve lost the turnover battle minus-three in the last two games, which we haven’t won a game here when you’re minus-three. Not many teams do.

“We also were getting about two takeaways per game from the defensive side and we weren’t able to get any takeaways in our  last two games. In the red zone offensively, our red zone touchdown we’re 31st in the league at 42 percent. So for us we’re going to have to make some changes and do some different things in the red zone because we have to be more successful. But there’s other things that we just need to keep doing the same and do them better and do them well.”
