Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson did not have any amazing antidote to his team’s struggles in the red zone so far this season.
The Seahawks are last in percentage of touchdowns inside the 20-yard line at 28.6 percent.
“Obviously in the National Football League everything moves a little bit faster the closer you get just because you’ve got that end line back there,” Wilson said. “So they can squeeze everything a little bit tighter. I think the main thing is you just have to trust what you see, get rid of the ball on time and really work on it in practice.
“That’s where you really get your timing and the communication is important in practice to transfer over to the games. You do have to really that obviously you want to score seven points every time. But at the same time, field goals are good situations, too. You’ve got to take the points when you have them, and to be able to do that, that’s great with our defense and the way they play.”
While New England certainly has the advantage at quarterback with Tom Brady, Wilson said he’s looking forward playing against on of the best signal callers in the game.
“Well, he’s one of the best quarterbacks of all time,” Wilson said. “Obviously he’s done a great job in New England. He’s really worked his offense extremely well. And so that’s the place I want to be someday, winning several Super Bowls and getting there several times here in this organization.”
Wilson also said he expects a tough challenge from New England’s defense, which already has 14 takeaways through five games.
“They’re coached extremely well,” Wilson said. “They attack the football, even after guys catch it, or when guys are running it. So we have to really protect the football, and just play our game. Get up the field, make plays and get first downs, one play at a time. And then we get down in the red zone or third down situations, we’ve got to capitalize.”
