The Bills had a good deal of success in the red zone in their first meeting with the Jets going 4-for-6 in their 20-point win back in Week 8. Since then however, Buffalo’s offense has gone 0-for-8 in the red zone since. Head coach Doug Marrone has been preaching a more aggressive approach inside the opponent’s 20-yard line, and the players are taking that message to heart.
Robert Woods explained what that means for him as a receiver.
“Be physical, run, be an open target at all times. Really just play fast,” said Woods. “When he says play aggressive it just means be ready for everything. Attack them when you come off the ball and make them back up and play everything, play honest.”
“We’re getting down there enough and moving the ball efficiently,” said Kyle Orton. “We had two drives in the first half last game and we had a 16-play drive and a 12-play drive. We had some issues early on on third down and we’ve done a better job with that.
“The red zone seems to be the last thing that comes. Everything is tighter down there. Everything is tougher down there. I think we’ve just got to keep working, keep pushing and when we finally break through we’ll do a good job.”
