2013: The Seahawks rally from a 20-point deficit to take a 28-27 lead with 31 seconds to play in their 2012 divisional playoff game in Atlanta, only to have the Falcons drive to a game-winning field goal with 8 seconds to play for a 30-28 victory. As disappointed as the Seahawks are that day, the players say the loss serves as motivation for their success during the 2013 season. In the loss to the Falcons, Russell Wilson passes for a career-high 385 yards and two touchdowns, while running for a third. Tight end Zach Miller catches eight passes for 142 yards.
