From Defense to the 12th Man, Seattle Dominates NFL
The Seattle Seahawks’ 43-8 thrashing of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII symbolized the Seahawks’ season — behind a fierce defense and the league’s loudest fans, Seattle simply overpowered its opponent. Led by head coach Pete Carroll and quarterback Russell Wilson, Seattle boasted the NFC’s best record at 13-3, including a 7-1 mark at home as the roars of the team’s passionate fans frequently registered on the Richter scale. The “Legion of Boom” defense led the league in turnovers while limiting opponents to a league-low 14.4 points per game. The Seahawks’ formula for success continued in the postseason with wins over New Orleans and San Francisco — the team’s trip to the Super Bowl clinched by Richard Sherman’s unforgettable end-zone deflection.
Packed with stunning action photography, stories and analysis from The News Tribune and The Olympian, Super Hawks: The Seattle Seahawks’ 2013 Championship Season takes fans through the Seahawks’ amazing journey, from the 29-3 blowout of the 49ers in the home opener to Marshawn Lynch’s emergence as an elite running back to the confetti- covered celebration in New Jersey.
