Seattle Seahawks linebacker K.J Wright has tried to look on the bright side following last week's defeat in LA
The NFC West franchise lost to the Rams which ended their five-match winning streak, but the 30-year-old does "necessarily think it is a bad thing"
Defeat makes Seattle's task of overhauling the San Francisco 49ers all that more difficult, but rids of any complacency.
“I don’t want to say you need those things to happen to you, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing,” said linebacker Wright.
“We were rolling, five-game winning streak, and we got hit in the mouth. And sometimes when you’re in a boxing match, you get hit in the mouth, you see how you respond.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll hopes Rams "humbling" can help team's attitude
Tom Brady will retire at the end of the season says ex-NFL quarterback Matt Hasselbeck
"And I believe this is going to be a time where we can really show how we can respond as a team, and that loss was not necessarily a really bad thing… That was just demoralising pretty much from beginning to end.
"You’ve just got to be like, it was one of those nights, and we have to make sure that the next week, we just fix whatever issues we had.”
The NFL has 'moved on' from Colin Kaepernick says commissioner Roger Goodell
Head coach Pete Carroll, who led the Seahawks to victory in Super Bowl XLVIII, was similarly philosophical about the defeat.
Having been in and around the game for more than three decades he has spoken of the "humbling" nature of the NFL.
“This league will humble you,” he said. “You get caught up in it, it can humble you. The teams are so good, and it doesn’t matter what their record is. It’s just that day. That’s always been the case."
