Seattle Seahawks SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

     

My Favourite Team in the NFL

A Brief History:

The Seattle Seahawks were established in 1974, though they started their first "official" season in 1976. They joined the NFL as an "expansion team", meaning that they were the first team from that state. The name "Seahawk" was chosen in 1975 after a naming contest was held. There were over 20,000 entries! They lost their first five games and won their first against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Buccaneers home field, With a final score of 13-10. In the 90s, they became bankrupt and were sold to Microsoft co-owner, Paul Allen, for $200 million. The well known team is now worth $997 million!

Super Bowl Appearances:

The Seattle Seahawks have previously been in the Super Bowl three times. They lost in 2005 against the Steelers, 10-21. In 2014, they lost to the Patriots, 24-28. It is still considered as one of the worst losses ever! In the last 20 seconds, instead of giving the ball to one of the best running backs in the game, Russell Wilson attempted to throw the ball to Lockette, though Malcolm Butler, on the Patriots, intercepted the ball. It was all over after that one last play. Though, a year before the upsetting loss, the Seahawks played a killer game, winning against the Broncos, 43-8!!
