Seattle Seahawks 28, Atlanta Falcons 30 — FINAL
In a heartbreaker for Seattle and an ecstatic win for Tony Gonzalez, Atlanta won a nailbiter.
Atlanta jumped out to a great lead early. However, they blew it late and lucked out that they were able to get the ball back with 31 seconds left. Matt Ryan was 24-for-35 (68.5 percent) for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Unfortunately, he also threw two interceptions.
On the other side, Russell Wilson had a great game. He went 24-for-36 for 385 yards and two touchdowns. However, the game ended on his only interception which was thrown right to Julio Jones on a Hail Mary play.
Atlanta takes on the San Francisco 49ers at 3:00 p.m. on January 20. The winner will represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
