The Baltimore Ravens might have dominated the Miami Dolphins, especially in the second half of yesterday's 26-10 win, but in order to go deep into the post season, they're going to have to be more successful scoring touchdowns in the Red Zone as opposed to just settling for Billy Cundiff field goals.

The Ravens crossed the Dolphins 20 yard line a total of seven times, and that does not include their first 32 yard scoring pass. Only once did they end up with six points, on a Joe Flacco to Derrick Mason TD pass. Four times they settled for field goals, once they missed the attempt and the other time they just plain muffed the FG snap and set.

Five scores out of seven trips inside the Red Zone might sound good, but the Ravens will need to up their TD count instead of ending up with three points way too many times. However, if they can get inside the Red Zone seven times in a game, that usually means they are moving the ball well and winning the time of possession battle, which usually results in a victory as it did yesterday.
