The Falcons broke a playoff winning drought, but it was close. After taking a 20-point lead into the locker room at the half, Atlanta watched Seattle battle all the way back and take a one-point lead on a touchdown with 34 seconds left on the clock. Matt Ryan used three plays to take his team 41 yards down the field to set up a 49-yard field goal.
Falcons kicker Matt Bryant missed his first kick, but a timeout gave him another chance at it. He made it the second time, with 13 seconds to spare. It gave Atlanta its first playoff win since 2004.
