11 – Red Zone rushing TD last year
This number coincides with the small number of rushing touchdowns for the year. On the ground, the Bruins simply couldn’t push the ball into the end zone. Their 11 red zone touchdowns on the ground were tied for 113th in FBS.
When an opposing team knows you can’t run the ball in the red zone, they can look for and defend the short pass.
In what seems to be a recurring theme, if Rosen is healthy this year the number will rise.
