The 53-man roster got the job done in Seattle on Sunday night, posting a 29-3 win over the 49ers. The 12th man got its job done, too. A fan group called Volume 12 announced Sunday via Facebook that it had reached a 131.9 decibel reading at the famously loud CenturyLink Field, according to The Associated Press. That means Sunday night’s feat is the new Guinness World Records mark for the “loudest stadium” — breaking the 131.76 decibels previously recorded in Turkey in 2011 during a Galatasaray SC-Fenerbahce soccer game. It didn’t all go smoothly for Seattle fans on Sunday, though — one ill-timed whistle got the team off on the wrong foot before both the Hawks and the 12th man bounced back.

Seahawks Richard Sherman dances with cheerleaders; taps Niners coach Jim Harbaugh on the butt after win

While I was personally rooting for the San Francisco 49′ers during Sunday night’s match between the Niners and the Seattle Seahawks, I have an affinity for sh*t talkers who can back it up. Naturally that means that Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman ranks high on my likes list. Sherman was a key piece in the 29-3 victory over the Seahawks NFC West rival 49ers with the biggest...

The Seattle Seahawks rode bad weather, and the loudest crowd in stadium history to a 29-3 dismantling of the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night football.

Colin Kaepernick - Russell Wilson Showdown 2.0

Spoiler alert: Colin Kaepernick (or at least his Madden NFL 25 avatar) will be losing an eyebrow as per the bet in the Madden TV commercial since Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks dominated the San Francisco 49ers Sunday evening, 29-3. After last week’s QB performance, I gave Wilson a ‘B’ grade, with the expectation that he and the Hawks could and would improve.  Kaepernick...
