Seahawks' season ends with 30-28 loss to Falcons in NFC divisional round

January 13, 2013 

The Seattle Seahawks' six-game winning streak -- and Russell Wilson's stellar rookie season -- ended Sunday with a 30-28 loss to the host Atlanta Falcons in the NFC divisional playoffs.

The Seahawks (12-6) rallied from a 20-0 first half deficit, scoring seven points in the third quarter and 21 in the fourth before Matt Bryant's 49-yard field goal gave the Falcons (14-3) the winning margin with 8 seconds left.

The Falcons will move on to next week's NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Wilson, the former Tri-City Dust Devils player, completed 24 of 36 passes for two touchdowns and a postseason-record 385 yards.
