This season marks the 10-year anniversary of the Seahawks first world championship as they beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII during the 2013-14 season. The Seahawks will host the Carolina Panthers at Lumen Field this Sunday and the organization will honor the Super Bowl winning team at half time.
One way the Seahawks are paying homage to the historic season that took place a decade ago is that the team will wear the white jersey and college navy pants at home for the first time ever. This is the same uniform combination that the team wore for their first Super Bowl victory.
On February 2, 2014, the Seattle Seahawks traveled to East Rutherford, NJ to take on the AFC Champion Denver Broncos led by MVP quarterback Peyton Manning. It was a battle of the top defense in the league in the Seahawks versus the number one ranked offense in the league in the Denver Broncos. The Seahawks defense led by the Legion of Boom held the high-powered Denver offense to only eight points en route to Seattle's first championship.
During the Super Bowl season, the Seahawks wore the white jerseys with college navy pants three times, including the Super Bowl victory. They first wore them in a rematch against the Atlanta Falcons who knocked the Seahawks out of the playoffs in the Divisional round of the previous season. In 2013, the Seahawks went to Atlanta and beat the Falcons by a score of 33-10. The next time the Seahawks would wear them would be in a game vs. the New York Giants at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey, the site of Super Bowl XLVIII. The Legion of Boom and the defense would go on to shut out Eli Manning and the New York Giants, giving the Seahawks a 23-0 victory. The Seahawks would wear these uniforms one more time during the season, their next trip to Met Life Stadium for the Super Bowl. With the team's 43-8 win in the Super Bowl, the Seahawks won all three contests when wearing these uniforms and outscored their opponents 99 to 18 during the 2013-14 season.
The Seahawks most recently wore this uniform combo in Week 2 of this season where they beat the Detroit Lions by a score of 37-31 in overtime. With that victory, the Seahawks improved their record to 25-19 when wearing them in the regular season and postseason. The team will hope to add another victory to their record when they wear them this week when the Carolina Panthers come to town.
