In November, just as the 2013 version of the Seattle Seahawks were starting to get healthy and showing signs of becoming the best team in the NFC, I rolled out a quick-look table pitting this year’s team against the Super Bowl team of 2005. You can view that tale of the tape here.

Ten weeks later the Seahawks are back in the Super Bowl, lending a lot more data from which to compare the franchise’s best two versions. The statistics below include the regular season, divisional playoff and NFC Championship for each team.

*Versus running backs, fullbacks and wide receivers only.
