The Seattle Seahawks are an American football team based in Seattle, Washington. Founded in 1976, the team is part of the professional football league in the United States, the NFL.
The Seahawks have had great success in recent years, reaching the playoffs several times and winning the Super Bowl in 2014. Under the guidance of coach Pete Carroll, the team boasts one of the best defenses in the league, with players like Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor who have become synonymous with one of the most fearsome defenses of all time.
One of the most iconic moments in the team's history occurred in 2013, during a playoff against the San Francisco 49ers. With the game on the line and seconds on the clock, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman threw an interception that sealed the victory for his team. His enthusiasm and his declaration following the action, in which he claimed to be the best of him, made him famous throughout the world.
The Seahwaks are also known for their die-hard crowd, which has earned them the nickname "12th Man". Seahawks fans create an incredible environment at home games, making Seattle's stadium, known as CenturyLink Field, one of the most difficult for opposing teams to visit.
