Seahawks-Falcons, by the numbers

20—Points, the biggest deficit Seattle face all season. The Seahawks were able to overcome even that big of a hole, only to lose the lead in the final seconds.

4—Losses on the road this season in which Seattle’s defense gave up a fourth-quarter lead late in the game (at Arizona, at Detroit, at Miami and Sunday in Atlanta).

2—Empty trips into the red zone for the Seahawks in the first half, points they desperately could have used by the end of the game.

46—Rushing yards gained by Marshawn Lynch on 16 carries, his lowest output since Seattle’s last loss.

385—Passing yards by quarterback Russell Wilson, the most in Seahawks postseason history, and also the most by a rookie quarterback in an NFL playoff game.

142—Receiving yards for Zach Miller, one yard short of the franchise record in a playoff game (Darrell Jackson, 1/14/2006)

44—More rushing yards gained by Atlanta (167) than Seattle (123). That’s particularly notable because the running game looked heading into the game like a part of the game where Seattle had a significant advantage. Instead, the Falcons were better in the running game, while the Seahawks had 116 more passing yards than the pass-happy falcons.

0—Punts by the Falcons in the first three quarters, though Matt Ryan was intercepted twice before the Seahawks forced a punt.

0—Sacks by the Seahawks, who clearly missed defensive end Chris Clemons. A blitz by Marcus Trufant produced the only hit on Matt Ryan all afternoon.
