ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders have done a fairly good job moving the ball down the field this season.
Getting the ball into the end zone has been a different case.
The Raiders (3-4) have been one of the NFL's least efficient teams when it comes to red zone offense, scoring touchdowns on only about one-third of their trips inside the opponent's 20-yard line.
As encouraging as it has been to get close to the end zone, Palmer said it is even more discouraging to have to settle for field goals from Sebastian Janikowski instead of consistently turning those trips into seven points.
While most teams wait until Fridays to practice their red zone offense, the Raiders began working on it earlier in the week after struggling inside the 20 last week against Kansas City.
