Decision in 2001 puts Seahawks on path to join NFC West in 2002.
On May 22, 2001, NFL owners unanimously voted for league realignment beginning with the 2002 season. Changes included the addition of the expansion Houston Texans (giving the league a nice, easily divisible number of teams with 32), a new South division in each conference, and the reshuffling of several teams' divisions as a result. The Seahawks, of course, made the move from the AFC West to the NFC West and, well, things have worked out pretty well.
Record vs. Since 2002
vs. Arizona: 20-15-1
vs. Rams: 22-14
vs. 49ers: 23-13
In addition to a winning record vs. the rest of the division, the Seahawks also hold an edge where it really matters: banners.
And while others in the division have reached the Super Bowl--an NFC West team has appeared in five of the last eight--the Seahawks are the only team in the division to hoist the Lombardi Trophy since the realignment.
