5 NFL Red Zone Trends to Monitor for Week 8

Through seven weeks, NFL teams have produced 510 offensive touchdowns. Of those, 320 have come through the air with another 190 on the ground, which comes to a 62.7% share in favor of the pass.

In the red zone, it is closer to even as teams have accounted for 203 passing (33 in Week 7) and 171 rushing scores (19 this week) inside the 20-yard line. Surprisingly, red zone passing touchdowns and overall scores are down from a year ago, but rushing touchdowns are up by 23. Those scores account for 812 fantasy points from passers, 1,026 from rushers and 1,218 for those on the receiving end of red zone touchdown passes.
