Seahawks 26, Falcons 24

Seahawks settle, then surge late

SEATTLE — Once the Seahawks finished yelling at each other, Russell Wilson was given an opportunity at another fourth-quarter comeback. As has become expected, the quarterback delivered and made any internal strife in Seattle a secondary story.

Steven Hauschka's winning field goal capped the 20th career fourth-quarter or overtime comeback for Wilson as the Seahawks slowed the hot Falcons.

Seattle's third straight win came only after seeing quarterback Matt Ryan blitz the Seahawks for 21 third-quarter points and watching cornerback Richard Sherman erupt on the sideline at his teammates, angry about blown coverages that led to two of Atlanta's three touchdowns.

Ryan was incomplete on his last four throws, including a breakup by Sherman on a long pass to Julio Jones on which the Falcons screamed for a pass interference flag. "Before I took off, (Sherman) grabbed my right side and spun me around before I jumped up," Jones said. "It was just a missed call. It's over with. It's done. We're onto the next one."
