The Atlanta Falcons, who defeated the Seattle Seahawks in the divisonal round of the 2013 playoffs and were a play away from a trip to the Super Bowl, offered very little resistance in the rematch Sunday.
Russell Wilson tossed touchdown passes to Jermaine Kearse and Golden Tate (who made an absolutely outstanding catch you can see here) and Steven Hauschka kicked four field goals as the Seattle Seahawks cruised to a 33-10 victory over the Falcons.
On the day, Wilson completed 19-of-26 passes for 287 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions.
The Seahawks’ defense dominated from the start, holding the Falcons under 100 yards of total offense until late in the third quarter. Matt Ryan had Roddy White back in the lineup, but White still doesn’t look healthy and caught just one pass for 20 yards. Ryan went 23-of-36 for only 176 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions.
Marshawn Lynch rushed for 145 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries as the Seahawks piled up 211 yards on the ground and limited the Falcons to just 64 yards rushing.
Overall, the Seahawks put up 490 yards of offense to the Falcons’ 226.
The win pushed the Seahawks’ record to 9-1 and kept them atop the NFC. The Falcons are now just 2-7.
