What really caused all the Cowboys issues on offense in the red zone?
The Cowboys finished the season 29th in red zone conversions, 48% on the year is pitiful. Only two playoff teams were in the bottom ten in red zone touchdowns, both from the great state of Texas. The Cowboys offense took quite the fall from where they had been, ranking sixth in 2017, and third in 2016. The struggles this offense experienced inside the opponent’s 20-yard line are due to a few variables.
