...the Eagles also lead the NFL in red-zone scoring percentage.

In eight trips inside the 20-yard line this season, the Eagles have scored seven touchdowns for a conversion rate of 87.5 percent. The one trip into the red zone without a touchdown ended in a David Akers field goal.

The Redskins, on the other hand, are tied for last in the league with Pittsburgh with a 22 percent red zone conversion rate, scoring just two touchdowns on nine crossings of the 20-yard line.

Saw this in my local paper today, thought it was interesting both that Shanny is picking up right where he left off and that Pittsburgh, despite being perhaps the best team in the league thus far this season, is having red zone issues apparently worse than ours. How is that possible?
