Redskins Having Trouble Close To The Goal Line

Red Zone efficiency is one of the best measures of just how good an offense is. A lot of teams can score from far away when a coverage is blown, or you have a receiver that is faster than the defender that is covering him. But in the red zone, the field is shortened, the defense usually knows what's coming, and whether or not you score comes down primarily to execution.

In nine possessions inside opponents' 20-yard line, the Redskins have scored only 29 points. Their two touchdowns in those nine possessions is an average of 22.2 percent - tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers at the bottom of the NFL.
