Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on fourth down and Seattle’s top-ranked defense forced two late turnovers, lifting the Seahawks into their second Super Bowl with a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
Just three years ago, the Seattle Seahawks limped into the playoffs with a 7-9 record via winning the NFC West. It was the first and only time that a 7-9 team had made the playoffs.

Pete Carroll and John Schneider were overjoyed during the April NFL draft when the Seattle Seahawks were able to grab Russell Wilson in the third round.
