Falcons frustrated by missed chances in red zone

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The bottom line doesn't look good for the Falcons' red-zone production.

After failing to score touchdowns in five of six possessions inside New England's 20 last week in a 30-23 loss, the Falcons rank near the bottom of the league in red-zone production.

Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter says the numbers are "frustrating and encouraging at the same time."

Koetter said Wednesday the good news is the offense is providing so many opportunities inside the 20. But he says the Falcons must do a better job of taking advantage of those scoring chances in Monday night's game against the New York Jets.

The red-zone woes have helped drop the Falcons to 1-3 for the first time since 2007.
