An amazing season for the Seahawks came to a tough end Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, as a Matt Bryant 49-yard field goal with 8 seconds left lifted the Falcons to a 30-28 win over the game Hawks.
Russell Wilson played his heart out, throwing for 385 yards with two TD’s throwing and one running, as the Hawks scored 21 points in the 4th quarter to nearly pull off the miracle comeback.
Marshawn Lynch went in for a TD with :31 seconds left, but Atlanta QB Matt Ryan hit two huge passes against the Hawks to set up Bryant with the game-winning kick.
The Hawks had 491 total yards, but falling behind 20-0 at the half and 27-7 to start the fourth quarter was just too much to overcome to a Falcons team desperate for a win.
Lynch had just 60 of Seattle’s 123 overall rushing yards, but the Seattle offense did enough to get the one-point lead with just over half a minute left.
It was a game effort for a team that had to travel twice in six days from the West coast to the East, but a flat first half killed the chances for the Seahawks.
