Getting to the red zone the issue

Bills WR Sammy Watkins had his first 100-yard receiving day in a month and a half, but it still wasn’t enough to help change the outcome in the loss to Denver. Watkins felt a recurring problem resurfaced on Sunday.

“We’ve got to get better in the red zone and put some points on the board,” he said. “I think we got aggressive in the second half and we started moving the ball. We just need to change our whole approach. I think once we get that killer instinct mindset to go down the field no matter what, no matter who we’re playing, we’ll be a great offense.

“We drove the ball down the field and we didn’t help ourselves out by putting seven on the board. Those are things that we have to clean up.”

Buffalo actually went 2-for-3 in the red zone Sunday. The bigger issue was sustaining the drive long enough where it reached the red zone.

Before Buffalo’s two late touchdown drives the Bills had eight possessions. The deepest penetration the offense made on those first eight possessions was the Denver 19-yard line, and the drive ended with an interception. The Bills only crossed midfield on three of those first eight possessions.
