'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

RENTON, Wash. — Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson can't wait for next season to begin. Neither can the rest of his Seahawks teammates.

“We're good. And we know that,” wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “And we know we're capable of winning any game and matching up against anybody that we play against, but we also know we have work to do. There is progress to be made.”

The Seahawks were clearing out their lockers Monday, a day after nearly staging one of the biggest playoff comebacks in NFL history before losing to the Atlanta Falcons, 30-28, in the divisional round.

Down 20-0 at halftime and 27-7 to start the fourth quarter, the Seahawks rallied behind Wilson's sterling play. He finished 14 of 19 for 241 yards and two touchdowns over the final 30 minutes. He added another touchdown run and when Marshawn Lynch scored on a 2-yard run with 31 seconds left, the Seahawks had taken a 28-27 lead.

Then Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan took over with 25 seconds left and two timeouts, and he connected on a pair of completions when Seattle's blitzes didn't get enough pressure on the passer. Matt Bryant then made a 49-yard field goal with 8 seconds left to give Atlanta the lead.
