SEATTLE, Wash. -- Defensive lineman Vince Wilfork was one of several Patriots players who faced the music following the team's disappointing 24-23 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday at CenturyLink Field. He spoke passionately.
"We didn't make enough plays, plain and simple. That's all I have. I'm very frustrated," Wilfork said. "I'm not going to sit here and lie to you and say I'm not. I'm very frustrated. I don't know what else to say. I'd probably lose my head right now, but [I'm] very frustrated. We just didn't make enough plays when it counted, and it cost us."
The Patriots had a handful of opportunities to put away the Seahawks, but in a disturbing trend that had also shown up through the first five weeks of the season, they once again failed to deliver the knockout.
"We had a lot of opportunities," said Wilfork, one of the team's captains. "But we did nothing about it, so it is what it is."
From Wilfork's view, it's not as if the Seahawks did anything out of the ordinary.
"Nope, everything they did, we know what they were going to do. They didn't shock us. Nothing shocked us. We just didn't make enough plays," he said.
As for the team's current standing, at 3-3 and in a four-way tie with the rest of the AFC East, Wilfork naturally isn't pleased.
"We're 3-3, plain and simple," he said. "It's not a magic wand. We're 3-3 for a reason. Until we do something about it, we're going to continue to have problems."
