Matt Bryant kicked a 49-yard field goal with 8 seconds left and the Atlanta Falcons bounced back after blowing a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter, defeating Russell Wilson and the gutty Seattle Seahawks 30-28 in an NFC divisional playoff game Sunday.
The old pro was on the sideline, resigned to the fact that this would turn out like so many games of the past. In the 16 years Tony Gonzalez has played tight end in the NFL, so many seasons ended early that he couldn't expect this one to be any different.
This was always going to be one of those once in a decade quarterback classes, even before Russell Wilson announced his arrival from what is arguably the loneliest outpost in the NFL.
He was given short shrift entering the season, primarily due to his diminutive stature. He went on to win Seattle's starting job, but nationally played second fiddle to Robert Griffin III and third banana to Andrew Luck in this season of high-profile rookie quarterbacks. But Russell Wilson is the one who has advanced to the playoffs' next round while the other two have begun their offseason vacations.
Staring at a potent one-two running punch of quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Marshawn Lynch, the Washington Redskins knew they were in for a tough time against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC wild-card round. They made it the game plan to stop them.
Wild-card weekend is over in the NFL playoffs, and Seattle's Russell Wilson is the lone rookie quarterback remaining.
While Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is getting a lot of the headlines heading into Sunday's playoff game, the Washington Redskins' defenders have no question who is the real newsmaker on the Seattle offense.
As a wideout, Santana Moss wants Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III to throw the ball as much as possible, of course, preferably in his direction.
Well, another fantasy year has passed, and I don't know about you, but it was a productive 2012 in the Pallister household.
Fueled by their deafening home crowd, the Seattle Seahawks locked up a spot in the postseason Sunday night.
Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy promised "payback" and "punishment" for the Atlanta Falcons last week, and he and his Carolina teammates delivered on Sunday.
From across the locker room, the shouts toward Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson were clearly heard.
It's been a terrific half-season for Matt Ryan, Marshawn Lynch, J.J. Watt and Charles Tillman.
Jim Harbaugh's San Francisco 49ers sure have a knack for leaving tough losses behind.
NFC Worst? Not anymore.
"Marshawn always tells me, 'I got your back, I got your back.'
"Marshawn always tells me, `Russ I got your back,'" Wilson said. "I let him know I have his back, too."
