A frustrated Patriots defensive captain Vince Wilfork wasn't in a mood for making excuses after the Patriots defense blew a 13-point fourth quarter lead Sunday after New England's 24-23 loss to the Seahawks in Seattle.
"Didn't make enough plays, plain and simple," Wilfork said. "That's all I have. Didn't make enough plays. What else can you do? We lost and we're moving on. That's where it's at.
"We didn't make enough plays, plain and simple. Very frustrated. 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 because I'll probably lose my head right now. We just didn't make enough plays when it counted, and it cost us."
Wilfork and the Patriots are now 3-3 and in a four-way tie with the Bills, Jets and Dolphins in the AFC East, with the Jets up next Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
"Who knows? We're 3-3, plain and simple," Wilfork said. "There'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. We just didn't do enough today and it cost us."
Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson beat the Patriots with a pair of touchdown passes in the fourth quarter, as he found Braylon Edwards from 10 yards on a fourth-down pass with under eight minutes remaining before connecting with Sidney Rice from 46 yards for the game winner with under 90 seconds remaining.
"We knew exactly what it was going to be," Wilfork said of Wilson. "Everything they did we knew exactly what they were going to do. We didn't make enough plays."
