Bleacher Sports is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Super Football Championship in Seattle.
That means we are celebrating the first year the franchise was crowned the #1 team in the league, which means we have a little history lesson to share with you.
The Super Bowl, officially known as the NFL Championship Game, was the first game in the modern era when the league had two championship teams in the same season.
The Seahawks and 49ers both went to the Superbowl that season, but it was the Seahawks who captured the trophy.
The Seahawks won it all with a 13-1 record in their first season of the league.
The Niners won it the next year, and the Seahawks had a perfect record the following season.
In fact, they won their first title in 1957 with a 15-1 season.
Seattle also had a dominant season that year.
Seattle was the only team to win the Superdome, a new building in downtown Seattle, for the first time in its 49-year history.
They won their next four championships and the following year, in the NFC championship game, they beat the New York Giants in overtime.
They went on to win Super Bowl LI, their last title in the regular season.
And what a championship game it was.
The two teams played seven straight seasons of the regular-season games and won the NFL championship in the Super bowl, the most lopsided championship in league history.
It was also the most expensive regular-game playoff in league sports history.
It was an incredible feat for any team, and it led to one of the greatest seasons in the history of the NFL.
It’s an incredible accomplishment, but the Seahawks were the only one of those teams to make the Super Bests.
The 49ers won four straight titles and the team went on a five-year run of consecutive titles before being knocked out of the playoffs in the 1970s.
The Niners went to Super Bowl VI, the year the NFL became a television league, and went undefeated in their final nine regular-playoff games before losing to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXXVII.
The team that won the Superbowl in Seattle in the 50s was a perennial contender that went on two more championships before being eliminated in the 1960s.
The team that beat the 49ers in the title game in 1957 was one of a number of teams that won multiple Super Bowls before being beaten by the Seattle team that had just come off its Super Bowl run.
In 1964, the 49er team that was knocked out in the championship game in 1956 was back to win it all the next season.
But in a historic year in the NFL, it was also a team that went to a Super Bowl.
It wasn’t the only franchise that did it, either, as the Packers won the first Super Bowl with a 10-1 regular-series record in 1956.
The Packers won Super Bowl XXVII with a 17-1 mark.
That’s the story of how the Seattle Supremes won their Super Bowl 25 years ago.
We are here to celebrate the next 25 years, too.
We’re talking about the first team to go to the NFL title game since the 49ERS in 1957.
That’s right, the Seahawks went to it in 1959.
The last time the Seahawks reached the Superfiesta was in the 1990s.
We’re talking the last time a franchise had a winning record and a Superbowl win in the span of one season.
That was in 2007.
The last time it happened in the current era was in 2004.
It didn’t happen until the 2011 season.
The current Seahawks have won the NFC West, AFC West, and Super Bowl XLIX.
They are also the only Seahawks team to have won both the NFC North and NFC South.
This season, they are tied for the NFC’s top spot with the Carolina Panthers.
They’re also the first Seahawks team since the 1960 Seahawks to win a Superdame.
The Panthers have been to the top of the division three times in their history.
That has been a remarkable run for the Seahawks.
They’ve gone back-to-back Super Bowl champions five times, and they won both titles in the 1950s and ’60s.
This is their fourth title in six years.
The only other teams to win more than six in a season are the Cardinals and the Saints.
Seattle has also made the playoffs three straight years.
Their only loss came in Superbowl XLIX in 2015.
That year, they lost to the San Francisco 49ers.
That season was their first playoff loss since 2007.
That loss came to the New England Patriots in the wild-card round.
That team was also led by two rookies, Percy Harvin and Jermaine Kearse, who both came into the NFL at the same time.
The Seattle Seahawks have gone to the playoffs four straight seasons, which is the longest streak of consecutive seasons since the 1994-95 Buccaneers.Seattle
