Associated Press
Down and out: Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson leaves the field Sunday after shaking hands with Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, whose Falcons eliminated the Seahawks from the NFC playoffs with a dramatic 30-28 victory. The Wilson-led Seahawks overcame a 20-0 halftime deficit to take a 28-27 lead with 31 seconds left, but Atlanta prevailed on Matt Bryant’s 49-yard field goal with 8 seconds remaining. Wilson threw two touchdown passes and ran for another as the Seahawks finished the season 12-6. Atlanta advanced to next Sunday’s NFC championship game against San Francisco. See Sports, Page B1.
