After a strong start to the 2020 NFL season, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have endured a rough patch over the last couple of weeks.
Back-to-back losses against the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams have reduced the Seahawks to a 6-3 record in Week 11. They go up against NFC West Division table-toppers Arizona Cardinals in a blockbuster showdown on Thursday night.
Ahead of their crucial Week 11 fixture, Wilson remains optimistic of changing the atmosphere in the dressing room. The veteran quarterback gave credit to Kyler Murray and Co. ahead of tomorrow’s game.
“They do a great job of mixing all the guys who pressure. They change their packages so much, they do a really good job of that. They’re one of the best in football at it. (Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph) is one of the best coaches in the game in terms of how he does his pressure packages.”
“For us it’s just about diagnosing it and being clear and being on the same page, communication-wise. I think that’s what kind of happened to us last time, just missed a couple blocks here and there. They bring a lot of confusion and different things that they try to do, but there’s also a lot of things that can happen because of it, in a good way for us as well. That’s the biggest thing that we have to be really clear on — identifying stuff and making sure we’re crisp,” Wilson told the team’s official website.
The Seahawks slipped to third in the NFC West Division table behind Arizona Cardinals and the Los Angeles Rams. They are winless in their last two outings in the league.
Thursday night’s game against the Cardinals is a must-win game for the Seahawks who are looking to seal a playoff spot. Can Russell Wilson overcome this minor slump as he pushes for the NFL MVP award? We don’t see why not.
