Down 20 points at halftime, the Seattle Seahawks showed the same resiliency they have all season, fighting back to take a one-point lead with 31 seconds left at the Georgia Dome on Sunday afternoon in an NFC divisional playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.

But Seattle left too much time on the clock, as Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan completed two passes to Harry Douglass and Tony Gonzalez to get his team into field goal range. And kicker Matt Bryant handled the rest, making a 49-yard field goal to give Atlanta its first playoff win under head coach Mike Smith

The Falcons will host San Francisco for the NFC Championship game next Sunday.

After a slow start, quarterback Russell Wilson caught fire, finishing 24 of 36 for a career-high 385 yards and two touchdown passes.

Wilson also had one meaningless interception at the end of the game, with Julio Jones picking off the rookie quarterback in Atlanta’s end zone to seal the victory.

Wilson’s favorite target was tight end Zach Miller, who finished with eight catches for a career-high 142 receiving yards, including a 3-yard touchdown catch

Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan completed 24 of 35 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns, but also had two costly interceptions.

Roddy White finished with five receptions for 76 yards, including a 47-yard touchdown.

Atlanta’s defense did a good job of bottling up Marshawn Lynch. He finished with just 46 yards on 16 carries, and fumbled for the second time in consecutive weeks.

However, Lynch did get the go-ahead touchdown for Seattle, bowling in from two yards out to cap a 7-play, 61-yard drive by Seattle.
