2. Win In The Red Zone
A constant issue for the Falcons over the years, converting red zone trips into points has been more of a headache than it should be for a team with Matty Ice, Julio, and Devonta Freeman on offense. This past Sunday, the Falcons scored one touchdown on four red zone trips against Tampa.
Although converting field goals are never a bad idea, this Falcons team in particular need to reach the end zone not only for the scoreboard but for the confidence factor as well. The Falcons were 18th in the league last season in red-zone touchdown percentage (54%). To put it in perspective, three of the four teams in last postseason’s conference championship games (Carolina, Arizona, and New England) were all in the top ten. Getting to the red-zone is one thing, walking away with six points on the board is another level.
