For most of his career Limited Jared Goff Jersey , the fourth quarter is where Russell Wilson has thrived. His late game heroics of leading comebacks in the fourth quarter or overtime to win games take up nearly an entire page of Seattle's weekly game notes.Except this year, when the fourth-quarter mistakes by Wilson have overshadowed his late-game successes. And those mistakes are part of the reason Seattle is 4-5 and faces such a critical game on Thursday night against Green Bay in the quest to stay in the NFC playoff conversation.Seattle is 1-8 in its last nine games decided by one score or less. Over the past two seasons, Seattle is 5-11 in one-score games. They used to be the types of games in which Seattle thrived, with Wilson finding a way to score and pull out a victory in the closing minutes, or defensively making the necessary stops to stem any late rally by an opponent.But that page in Seattle's game notes detailing his 24 comebacks in the fourth quarter and overtime has just three entries over the past two seasons."There's two things there. It goes back to finishing right. If we can make one or two plays here or there across the board 鈥?offensive, defensive, special teams, whatever it may be 鈥?we can turn that around really easily. That's the great thing," Wilson said. "The second thing is ... we're in every game and every game is really close and every game we're right there to win the game. I'm looking forward to that turning around. We have great confidence in that and what we're going to do."There's no doubting that in stretches this season Wilson has played great. He's thrown for 14 touchdowns with just two interceptions over the past five games. And the success or failure of Seattle in the fourth quarter is not solely his responsibility.But there's also been a pattern of crucial late-game mistakes by Wilson that has been a contributing factor to each of Seattle's five losses.鈥?In a Week 1 loss at Denver, Seattle gained seven yards on its final three drives and Wilson threw an interception on a desperation throw on the final play of a 27-24 loss.鈥?In Week 2 at Chicago, Wilson threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown with the Seahawks trailing 17-10 Orlando Pace Jersey , and on Seattle's next drive fumbled while being sacked. Seattle lost 24-17鈥?In Week 5 against the Rams, Wilson missed on his final two passes with Seattle closing in on field goal range while down by two points with less than 4 minutes left. Seattle punted and never got the ball back in a 33-31 loss.鈥?In Week 9, Wilson threw his second fourth-quarter interception that was returned for a touchdown when Desmond King stepped in front of a pass and the pick-six ended up being the deciding points in the Chargers' 25-17 win.鈥?And last week, Wilson was stripped by Dante Fowler midway through the fourth quarter deep in Seattle's end. Brandin Cooks' TD run on the next play ended up being the deciding points in the Rams' 36-31 win.The only one-score game the Seahawks have won this season was arguably one of its uglier performances when Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 52-yard field goal on the final play to beat Arizona in Week 4. And while several of those games have seen Wilson rebound from his mistakes to give Seattle a chance in the closing seconds, the final results are not what the Seahawks have come to expect."It's finishing at the right time, making the right play. We've been so good at those games for such a long time that the fact that it's not happening is a little bit unusual," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "I'm disappointed because we've been able to always feel like we're going to win those games and do it. We still have the same mentality about it and attitude about it, but we've got to show it. We've got to get those finishes done."NOTES: LB K.J. Wright (knee) was the only player not to participate in practice on Tuesday. Wright's knee caused him to leave Sunday's loss to the Rams early. ... G D.J. Fluker (calf) and RB Chris Carson (hip) were full participants, strengthening Seattle's belief the pair will play after missing last week's game.
