The Seattle Seahawks is a National Football League team based in Seattle, Washington. The team was founded in 1976 and is one of four teams that play in the National Football Conference West Division. The NFL expansion franchise was given to Seattle department store owner John Nordstrom. The nickname Seahawks was the result of a fan contest that drew 20,365 entries and suggested 1,742 different names. Seahawks was suggested by 151 entrants and judged by the team ownership as the best choice.On June 4, 1974, the National Football League awarded its 28th franchise to Seattle to play in the 64,984-seat Kingdome.The Seahawks entered the NFL as an expansion team along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976. The Seahawks entered as members of the National Football Conference West division.A year later, they switched conferences with their expansion partners, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and joined the AFC West. They played in the American Conference until 2002, when, with league realignment, they were returned to the National Football Conference.In the clubs first season, quarterback Jim Zorn passed for more than 2,500 yards and was named the leagues top offensive rookie.

Jack Patera was named coach of the year in 1978 after leading the Seahawks to their first winning season. Zorn led the AFC in passing yardage that year, and wide receiver Steve Largent notched the first of his eight 1,000-yard seasons. By their third season, the Seahawks posted a winning record which they repeated in 1979. The 1980s featured more winning ways with several playoff appearances for the Seahawks. The team advanced to the American Football Conference (AFL) championship for the first time in 1983 and claimed its first division title in 1988.They would claim their second division title in 1999 (AFC West).
