Falcons-Seahawks Series History


Hi,

           I'm back for the next installment of the series history of the Falcons 2010 opponents. This week, the Seahawks.

          The Seahawks lead the series, 8-3 going back to 1976, where they met in Seattle for the first time, with the 'Hawks winning, 30-13. The next meeting was on a Monday night in October of 1979 at the ATL, on a cool, rainy night, saw kicker Efren Herrera of the 'Hawks run a fake FG for a TD, and they had to hold off a furious Falcons rally, 31-28. First win came in 1991, in what would be the last game at Atlanta Fulton County Stadium, the Falcons would win this one, 26-13. Next win (and only win) in Seattle came in 1997, 24-17, with Byron Hanspard leading the way with a couple of TD's. That game took place in the middle of a Falcons resurgence which would carry on through the 1998 season. The 2002 game at the ATL was memorable for the fact the Falcons blew a 10 point lead, only to have the Seahawks come back and take the lead, but only to have the Vick led Falcons come back to tie, but only to lose in OT, 30-24, after a fumble recovery, and one play later, Shaun Alexander burst up the middle for the game winning TD. That game almost cost the Falcons in the playoff race that year. And, last, but not least, the last time these two played was the final game of the 2007 season. Seahawks last playoff appearance. Falcons had nothing to lose at the ATL that afternoon, and Chris Redman refused to lose that game, winning 44-41 in a wild back and forth affair, which I think set the ground work for what we have now. Now, as far as the game on Sunday goes, I think the Falcons win this one, 37-24, getting some help from the 'hawks in the form of a couple of TO's, and just punching the Ospreys in the face. It will be the second win ever in Seattle for the Falcons as they finally clinch a postseason berth against the tripolar Seahawks, you don't know what you are going to get with these guys. Have a Merry Christmas, Falcoholics! Will be back next week with the dreaded, hated, reviled, evil Saints.
