Falcons Overcome Seattle Rally

January 13, 2013 Updated Jan 13, 2013 at 6:46 PM EDT

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons called on a pair of Matty Ices to turn back the greatest fourth - quarter comeback in NFL playoff history. After the top - seeded Falcons squandered a 20 - point lead in the fourth quarter, Matt Ryan completed two long passes and Matt Bryant kicked a 49 - yard field goal with 8 seconds to give Atlanta a stunning 30 - 28 victory over Russell Wilson and the gutty Seattle Seahawks in an NFC divisional playoff game Sunday.

The Falcons, 14 - 3, overcame their reputation for choking in the playoffs, winning their first postseason game since 2004. They'll host San Francisco in the NFC championship game next Sunday with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Wilson threw two touchdown passes and ran for another, doing all he could to make the Seahawks, 12 - 6, the first playoff team ever to rally from such a daunting deficit in the final period. Marshawn Lynch appeared to have locked it up for Seattle when he scored on a 2 - yard run with 31 seconds left for a 28 - 27 lead.
