No. 1 - February 2, 2014: Seahawks win their first Super Bowl

The most memorable win in Pete Carroll's time in Seattle will always be winning Super Bowl 48. Bringing the first Super Bowl to Seattle is going to be what fans remember most. The game was played as close to perfect as it could have been by the Seahawks that day.

No one will forget when the ball was snapped over the head of Peyton Manning for a safety on the first play from scrimmage. The Seahawks dominated from then on, in a complete team win. The Seahawks defense picked off Manning twice, including an interception for a touchdown, by eventual Super Bowl 48 MVP Malcolm Smith.

Percy Harvin put any doubts of a Seahawks win to rest on the first play of the second half with an 87-yard kick return for a touchdown to put Seattle up 29-0. Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes one to Doug Baldwin and another to Jermaine Kearse.

Marshawn Lynch also had a touchdown run as well. The Seahawks' defense which was the best in the NFL, forced four turnovers and held the league's best offense to just eight points. The Seahawks would win their first Super Bowl in franchise history 43-8.
