Seattle Seahawks Shutouts

Published by Steve Campion. Category: Sports & Recreation

UPDATED: The list below has been updated since its original publication.

The Seattle Seahawks had some fun today running up the score like never before.  Their 58-0 demolition of the Arizona Cardinals at CenturyLink Field was the biggest shutout in team history — and one of the biggest ever in the NFL.*  They matched the previous franchise record (45-0) less than four minutes into the second half, then more or less coasted from there.

Powered today by Russell Wilson (148 passing yards), Marshawn Lynch (128 rushing yards, 3 touchdowns), Robert Turbin (108 rushing yards), and Anthony McCoy (105 receiving yards), Seattle posted 10 points in the first quarter, 28 in the second, 13 in the third, and 7 in the fourth. There were nothing but zeroes on the other side.

Shutout or not, the Hawks scored more points today than ever before, too. The 1977 team beat Buffalo 56-17 — an offensive record that lasted 35 years. Seattle scored more than 50 points in a game only one other time during the intervening years.

We had no plans to post this list today, by the way, but how could we resist?  We already had it in our files.  All we had to do was add a new top line and start celebrating.

*The Seahawks victory was the third biggest NFL shutout in since the NFC/AFC merger.  Two games wrapped up 59-0: the L.A. Rams defeated Atlanta in 1976, and New England crushed Tennessee in 2009.  Two long-ago pre-merger shutouts were won by the Chicago Bears (73-0 over the Washington Redskins, 1940) and the Philadelphia Eagles (64-0 vs. Cincinnati Reds, 1934).

**Five of the shutout victories listed here took place in the national spotlight of Monday Night Football.
