(TSX / STATS) -- SEATTLE -- Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan threw two touchdown passes, and Seattle came up short on a game-tying field-goal attempt with two seconds left as the Falcons held on to defeat the Seahawks 34-31 on Monday night.

Down by 11, the Seahawks tried to rally late. Quarterback Russell Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin on a 29-yard touchdown and tight end Jimmy Graham hauled in Wilson's two-point conversion pass to get the Seahawks within a field goal with three minutes left.

The Falcons needed one first down to put the game away, but Seahawks defensive end Sheldon Richardson sacked Ryan on third-and-1, setting the stage for another potential Seahawks fourth-quarter comeback.
