Red zone defense is an area the 1-12 Cincinnati Bengals can be proud about. The defense ranks third in the NFL in the red zone. Opponents reach the end zone just 44% of the time when they cross the 20-yard line.

Conversely, Cincinnati’s red zone offense has been an eyesore. Entering Week 15, the Bengals are second-to-last red zone offense. The team scores a touchdown only 37% of the time they reach the red zone.
