Sunday’s NFL-Playoff Summary

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


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


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


The other playoff games next weekend are Green Bay at San

Francisco (Saturday) and Houston at New England (Sunday).
