The Red Zone Review, or, A Tale of Misery and Woe. Oakland Raiders vs. Houston Texans

So...that happened.

Honestly, I'm not entirely sure what happened in the last two minutes of the game.  It's not that I didn't watch the last two minutes, or was distracted by any stretch of the imagination.  I just remember a lot of screaming at the very end, my first experience with being catatonic, and a very long, very silent car ride home. 

In some ways, I'm kind of fortunate that I can repress memories the way I can.  Unfortunately, that means I also have to relive the pain, the abject horror of learning how the Texans' game ended over and over again.  With that in mind, this week's red zone review will be truncated for the benefit of those who still remember how that game ended and would desperately wish to forget.

Number of Trips into Red Zone:  3
Total Amount of Time in the Red Zone:  3:06
Average Amount of Time in Red Zone:  1:02
Red Zone Efficiency:  1/3 (33%)
Scores in Red Zone:  1 TD (Kevin Walter)
End Result:  Sadness

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go somewhere and cry.
