    In the beginning of the year, a major concern was red zone defense, especially when opposing teams were 13/16 in opportunities. Well, in the last two weeks, the steelers and Jets had a combined 7 opportunities and scored TDs zero times. Steelers were 0/3 and Jets were 0/4.

    Using Mike Reiss' stats
    Red-zone defense
    This week: 31st (31 possessions, 20 TDs, 64.5 percent)
    Last week: 32nd (28 possessions, 20 TDs, 71.4 percent)


    [FONT=&quot]After holding the Jets 0/4, it’s 35 possessions and 20 scores 57.1%.With only 8 successes in the last 19 opportunities (42%) the defense has found the right time to regain that bend but don't break mentality.

    * There is a discrepancy as to whether the opposition has had 20 or 21 successes in the red zone.......
