Seattle Seahawks in the Superbowl

Season

The Seahawks are a good team though, without Alexander, not a superbowl team even though he
didnt do much. Shaun Alexander is the first player in NFL history to score 15 or more
touchdowns during the regular season for four consecutive years.

Seattle's defense thrives despite distractions. The Seahawks had to deal with adversity and
defensive personnel changes all season, but were never thrown off course. Each NFL team
receives one week without a game, known as a bye, during the football season.

Pittsburgh set an NFL record with its ninth road win of the season and ended the Broncos' 11-
game home winning streak. The Broncos had been second in the NFL in turnover margin during
the regular season. "Big Ben", 26-4 as a starter, has matured into a seasoned leader in his second
NFL season, one who can handle pressure.

Jurevicius is in his eighth season in the NFL and also has had an outstanding year. Seattle led the
NFL with 50 sacks during the regular season and has four in the playoffs. His two playoff
touchdowns tied him for second in the NFL last season. In terms of NFL ranks, this defense was
#5 against the run and #7 in fewest points scored during the regular season.

Team

The Seahawks are the only NFL team to switch conferences twice in the post-merger era. These
will be 60 hard-fought, difficult minutes against the hottest, most physical team in the NFL.
Seattle has the experience and talent to compete with any team in the NFL. They have clearly
established themselves as a the elite team in the NFL. We're the most hated team in the NFL and
we're going to prove why in the Superbowl.

tickets on online 24 hours a day. Every April the NFL conducts its amateur draft, in which each
team obtains the rights to the professional services of the best college players. The move was
killed by NFL owners and a $3 billion state lawsuit was filed against the team for reneging on
their Kingdome lease.

Game

The officials are the best in the NFL for this game. The "Phantom Touchdown" game was
decided by a legendary officiating error that became a primary factor in the NFL's reinstatement
of instant replay. Everybody but the officials, who the NFL said called the best game of the
decade. In the end, though, history will remember this game as one of the greatest playoff
collapses in NFL history.

History
Thirty years into franchise history, Seattle is playing for the NFL championship for the first time.
When you have running, passing and the best defensive back in the history of the NFL, you are
going to be tough to beat.
