The Jets finished 30th in red zone offense last season, converting only 20 of 50 red-zone opportunities (40 percent) into touchdowns. They pretty much have reversed that statistic in 2011.
After going 2-for-2 in a 34-19 win over Washington on Sunday, the Jets are tops on the NFL at 67.6 percent, having converted 25 of 37 red-zone chances into touchdowns.
Both WR Santonio Holmes and RB LaDainian Tomlinson noted Thursday that the Jets are spending much more time this season working on red zone offense, with almost all of their Friday practices devoted to this aspect. — J.P. Pelzman, Sporting News
For as much as the offense has struggled to arrive on time to their games, at least they have improved in the one area that drove us crazy last season!
