BTSC Weekly Comcast RedZone Update - Week 11 Edition

I hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends. Before moving on to some Ravens coverage in anticipation of Sunday night's huge game in Baltimore, on to our weekly redzone update post, which is sponsored by Comcast and their new, critically acclaimed Red Zone Channel

Week 11 Red Zone Efficiency

5 trips, 3 TDs, 1 FG, 1 INT

2009 Cumulative Red Zone Efficiency:

36 Trips; 18 TDs; 14 FGs; 1 missed FG, 3 turnovers...50.0 % TD efficiency (+1.7%)  88.8 % scoring efficiency (-1.5%)

The Steelers were actually better this past Sunday against the Chiefs in the redzone than they'd been since the Denver game. However, Ben Roethlisberger's interception in the redzone let the Chiefs back in the game when Pittsburgh had a chance to extend their lead back up to 10 points. The interception was a terrible read, decision and throw by Big Ben. What's even more tough to swallow is the fact that the interception counterfeited an otherwise solid day for him. He had also been particularly good on that drive prior to the pick - he was 6 of 8 for 78 yards and all 6 completions were for at least 10 yards. 

Anyway, if the Steelers are going to steal a win in Baltimore on Sunday night, they'll need to obviously not turn the ball over when they're knocking on the door for points; they'll also need to convert some of their redzone opportunities into touchdowns rather than field goals. They've been up and down this year doing so. Let's just hope the Steelers have one of their better days play calling and executing inside the Ravens 20 this coming Sunday.
