After a week hiatus, let's revisit the Pittsburgh Steelers' red zone production - both last week during their 28-10 win over the Cleveland Browns, and their season totals through five games.

Week 6 Totals

RZ Trips:4

Touchdowns: 3

Turnovers: 1

TD Efficiency: 75 %

Field Goal Attempts/Makes: 0/0

FG Efficiency: --

Scoring Efficiency: 75 %


2010 Season Totals

RZ Trips:15


Field Goal Attempts/Makes: 7/7

Turnovers: 1

TD Efficiency: 46.66 %

FG Efficiency: 100 %

Scoring Efficiency: 93.3 %


Even though the Steelers scoring efficiency dipped below 100% for the first time all year thanks to an errant throw by Ben Roethlisberger early on in last Sunday's win, the Steelers actually had their best day offensively operating inside the 20. Two TD passes to Ward and Miller were a welcomed site, and a pleasant reminder of just how much better this team is with Roethlisberger at the controls. The third score, a 2 yard run by Rashard Mendenhall, was just another small piece of evidence that the short-yardage and goal-line rushing attack of the Steelers appears to be vastly improved from the previous two seasons.

Good stuff, keep it up! Go Steelers!
