Seahawks Get a Big Boost From the '12th Man'

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE, Wash - With the raising of the 12th Man flag on the Space Needle today the Seahawks are looking to rally fans for Saturday's playoff game against Washington in Qwest Field. Fan noise makes a difference. Since the start of the 2005 season, opposing teams have committed 68 false start penalties, the most in the NFL. The 10-6 Seattle team is 7-1 at home this season. The 9-7 Washington team won it last four regular season games to make the playoffs. The team has rallied since the death of Sean Taylor who was shot during a burglary at his home in Miami.
