The Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers game took place back on Sunday, January 19. Despite the hype that was the Manning vs. Brady showdown, the NFC Championship game was definitely the one to watch that day. It ended in spectacular, even controversial, fashion, when the 49ers were about to take the lead in a last-ditch drive down the field. But the Seahawks' super-impressive defense stepped up and intercepted the ball in the end zone, culminating in what everyone couldn't stop talking about after the game: That infamous Richard Sherman interview.
But here's something a little less controversial that's been making the rounds all week in the lead-up to the Super Bowl. A bunch of die-hard Seahawks fans were tasked with watching the NFC Championship game in complete and utter silence. That's right, not one word. If they succeeded, these members of the Seattle Youth Football League would walk away with $5,000. A huge and daunting task for even the most casual of football fans!
