RENTON, Wash. -- Russell Wilson plays well on any field, but at home, he's unbeatable in his NFL career.

Seattle's 14-game home winning streak easily is the best in the league. The Patriots are second with eight consecutive home wins.

The Seahawks are outscoring opponents by an average of 18.6 points per game during the home winning streak and have a plus-21 turnover ratio in those games.

Wilson, obviously, is a big part of that success. He has never lost at CenturyLink Field, and his total quarterback rating of 75.1 in home games is the second-best in the NFL in the past two seasons, behind only Peyton Manning.

Some of Wilson's best performances have come when teams tried to blitz him, something the Arizona Cardinals might want to think about Sunday.

The Cardinals sent five or more pass-rushers at Wilson on 70.6 percent of his dropbacks in the game two months ago at Arizona, the highest rate he has faced in his career.

They sacked him three times, but Wilson completed 14 of 22 passes for 198 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions when the Cardinals blitzed him in the 34-22 Seattle victory. Wilson ended the night with three TD passes, completing 18 of 29 passes overall.
