 Seahawks 24, Redskins 14
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -Wild-card weekend is over in the NFL playoffs, and Seattle's Russell Wilson is the lone rookie quarterback remaining.
And, Wilson's Seahawks made a pretty good case that they might be here a while.
Wilson teamed with Marshawn Lynch to lead Seattle to a 24-14 comeback victory Sunday over the Washington Redskins, who finished the game without Robert Griffin III - their star rookie quarterback who reinjured his right knee.
The Seahawks (12-5) overcame a 14-0 first-quarter hole - their biggest deficit this season - and will visit the top-seeded Atlanta Falcons (13-3) next Sunday.
Ravens 24, Colts 9
BALTIMORE (AP) - Anquan Boldin set a franchise record with 145 yards on five receptions, including the clinching touchdown, as Baltimore beat Indianapolis 24-9 in Sunday's AFC wild-card game.
The previously struggling Ravens defense was staunch, inspired no doubt by star linebacker Ray Lewis appearing in his final home game before retiring. Baltimore never let Colts standout rookie quarterback Andrew Luck get comfortable.
AFC North champion Baltimore (11-6) will play at AFC West winner Denver next Saturday. The Broncos beat the Ravens 34-17 three weeks ago.
The loss ended the Colts' turnaround season in which they went from 2-14 to the playoffs in coach Chuck Pagano's first year in Indianapolis (11-6). Pagano missed 12 weeks while undergoing treatment for leukemia and returned last week.
In Baltimore, Ray Lewis and the Ravens eliminated Andrew Luck, the No. 1 overall pick, and the Indianapolis Colts with a 24-9 win. The victory delayed Lewis' retirement for at least another week.
The other playoff games next weekend are Green Bay at San Francisco (Saturday) and Houston at New England (Sunday).
