The Baltimore Ravens 23-20 overtime loss to the New England Patriots might have fans looking at the playcalling as the major reason for the team's failure to either put the Patriots away when they had a ten point lead, or just manage a field goal to win it in the extra session. However, the team's inability to put the ball in the end zone once they reached the Patriots' Red Zone is as good of a place to look at when dealing with this frustration.
The Ravens entered the Red Zone three times Sunday and while they came away with three scores, only one of them was a touchdown and the other two short field goals. The TD was a 16 yard pass, but both field goals ended on possessions deep inside the Red Zone faltering at the eight and seven yard lines. Had one of those three-pointers been seven instead, the OT period might not have been needed as the Ravens could have left Foxborough with a win instead of a disappointing defeat.
