He had pointed to it for a few weeks and coming off a game in which they were as successful as they’ve been all season, head coach Doug Marrone is sticking with it as the most necessary area of improvement if the Bills are to follow through and become a playoff club.
When he was asked this week for the one most important improvement to finish the season off and qualify for the postseason Marrone pointed to red zone execution.
“It’s been our red zone production and the ability to run the ball better than we have, especially in the red zone where we haven’t been efficient,” said Marrone. “I think we saw that against the Jets where we went 3-for-3 in the red zone and really pull away from a team. If you go back and look at the games where we haven’t played well we ended up kicking a lot of field goals and not really being able to score. I think at the end of the day when you have those opportunities, and we’ve had many, we’ve got to make sure that we score. That’s the one area that if we improve upon and keep going the way we’re going in the red zone then I think we’ll be in very good shape.”
