SEATTLE - The high-water mark for Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks offence occurred on Monday night, Dec. 2, when they shredded the New Orleans Saints 34-7.

It was a dominating performance.

Wilson threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns, and expertly directed an attack that racked up 429 total yards -- at a clip of 6.2 yards per play.

Then someone pulled the plug from the tub, and the Seahawks offence’s mojo has been draining ever since.

If it isn’t already, this should be every Seattle fan’s foremost concern heading into Sunday’s NFC championship game against the arch-rival San Francisco 49ers here at CenturyLink Field (6:30 p.m. EST, CTV/FOX).

The accompanying chart shows the stark difference between Wilson’s productivity and efficiency up to and including that Monday night win, and in the five games since.
