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 appeared to reinjure 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.

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 as Baltimore (11-6) heads to top-seeded Denver (13-3) next Saturday.

The other playoff games next weekend are Green Bay at San Francisco (Saturday) and Houston at New England (Sunday).
