Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was asked about his team’s struggles in moving the ball through the air on the road.
The Seahawks are 1-3 away from home this season. And Wilson has played poorly on the road, with two touchdowns, seven interceptions and a 55.7 passer rating.
“I think the biggest difference is we just have to play a little better,” Wilson said. “Whatever it is, we’ve lost some very close games on the road. So we just need to finish those games, and that’s what it really comes down to.
“So, just focusing on executing and finishing, especially in the second halves, and the third quarters and fourth quarters, we’ve got to just make the plays when we need them.”
Asked what the optimal amount of throws he would like to make, Wilson once again did not take the bait.
“Enough throws to win,” Wilson said. “It doesn’t matter what it is. I don’t care what it is. I don’t care if it’s one, two or 32 – or 52 – it’s just making enough throws to win the game.”
“I think the key is just in terms of the passing game is to continue to work on our third down and in the red zone just capitalize when we get those opportunities,” Wilson said.
Asked about his ability to rally his team late in games, Wilson said that’s the moment he lives for as a football player. Wilson also said that he believes those late-game experiences will help Seattle in the second half of the season.
“All I ever ask for is to have the ball in my hands with two minutes left to win the game,” Wilson said. “That’s what I think we’ve done a great job of this season. Even though we’ve lost three tough games on the road, we’ve had a chance to win the game. And same with the game we’ve won.
“And so I think that’s the biggest thing. This league is so tough. And every week it’s going to come down to the last minute or two usually. And so that’s what I ask for. That’s what I want.”
