Browns Complete Season Sweep of Bengals 26-18: 5 Takeaways

4) Red Zone Dominance

Under the guidance of Hue Jackson and Todd Haley, the Browns red zone offense ranked around 18th in the league mid-way through the season as they were scoring touchdowns on just over 50-percent of their red zone possessions. Since Jackson and Haley were fired and Williams and Kitchens have taken over, that percentage has ballooned to 70-percent.

That dominance in the red zone continued today as Cleveland turned three of their six trips inside the Bengals 20 into touchdowns.

All six did end in points as well, which is good. Ideally, you’d like to see touchdowns on more than 50-percent of those red zone possessions, but when you get there six times you’re bound to miss a few.

Players always point to the red zone and third down being the two most important statistics to dominate. The Browns have excelled with the former, which is not only a great thing for the future of the offense but also for Kitchens when he goes to interview for jobs.
