The 49ers and Seahawks have never met in the postseason, but they have developed quite a rivalry in the NFC West. Their all-time series record is 15-15, and San Francisco has won five of the last seven meetings. However, Seattle has won four of the last five at home, outscoring the 49ers, 139-58, in those games. Road warriors Much of the talk surrounding this game will be about San Francisco's recent struggles in Seattle. But 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh is comforted by the way his team has played away from home lately, winning three consecutive road games, including against Green Bay and Carolina.

In Week 3, Seattle plays host to Denver, the team it beat in Super Bowl XLVIII in February....

Not only does Brian Banks have a new lease on life, but he has a flicker of NFL hope. After spending five years in prison on charges of rape and kidnapping, and five more as a falsely accused registered sex offender, the recently exonerated Banks made the most of his workout for Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll. Carroll invited him back to participate in Seahawks mini-camp next week. "He deserved a chance," Carroll told reporters. "This is a guy who deserved it. " Banks, 26, who had been a standout linebacker at Long Beach Poly when he was accused of raping classmate Wanetta Gibson on campus during summer school.

Picking up where they left off in February, the two teams in Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle and Denver, open the 2014 NFL season with blockbuster games. The league released its schedule Wednesday, revealing the defending champion Seahawks will play host to Green Bay in the opener Thursday, Sept. 4, and Indianapolis will play at the Broncos in the opening Sunday night game. Packers-Seahawks is a rematch of a 2012 "Fail Mary" game won by Seattle on the final play, a controversial touchdown pass that from every camera angle looked to be an interception by Green Bay. Replacement officials called it a touchdown for the Seahawks, however, and that game proved to be the final straw that ended the officiating lockout.

When he isn't messing with people's heads - - his good-natured trash talk always seems to cause a stir - - Richard Sherman is trying to mold young minds. The Seattle Seahawks cornerback spent time in his old neighborhood Wednesday, talking to high school students at Compton Dominguez (his alma mater) and Verbum Dei, then to a group of young people at a nearby Brotherhood Crusade community center. Sherman, a former Stanford player who had eight interceptions for the Seahawks in the 2012 season, routinely makes an effort to give back to the community.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has been fined $7,875 by the NFL for taunting the San Francisco 49ers during the final minute of the NFC championship game on Sunday in Seattle. With 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Sherman deflected a pass in the end zone intended for 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith intercepted the tipped pass, sealing the Seahawks' 23-17 victory over San Francisco. After the play, Sherman ran after Crabtree, patted his behind and tried to shake his hand, prompting the San Francisco receiver to push the Seahawks cornerback in the face.

The Seahawks face the challenge of avoiding overconfidence in light of their 34-7 demolition of New Orleans in Seattle five weeks ago. "The first thing I addressed with the team when we came back together was, 'What happened in the past doesn't tell the story of what's going to happen in the future,'¿" Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll said. "So you have to have the discipline to do that. " Something that won't change: CenturyLink Field will be loud. Seahawks fans - nicknamed the 12th Man - set a Guinness Book World Record for crowd noise earlier this season, lost the title to Kansas City around midseason, and reclaimed it during with the victory over the Saints.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - It was one of the biggest, and perhaps the most quickly forgotten, interceptions in NFL playoff history. When Seattle's Richard Sherman tipped away a pass intended for San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree in the NFC championship game, linebacker Malcolm Smith caught the ball to complete a play that sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl. But Smith's heads-up effort instantly became an afterthought when Sherman's emotional postgame outburst made the cornerback one of the Super Bowl's main story lines.

The mysterious case of Adam Muema took another twist Friday when the former San Diego State running back reappeared via social media. “There's one person who was so righteous & pretty much walked into Heaven. Don't think my plans are anything less than that :),” he tweeted early Friday in the first of 12 such entries. Muema disappeared Sunday after leaving the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis without working out because he believed God told him the Seahawks would draft him. On Instagram, Muema attempted to explain the circumstances of his abrupt departure in a 128-word post.

We just played into their hand and were never able to get over the hump. " Here, now, is the post-massacre interview with Custer after Little Bighorn: "General, what happened out there today?" Custer: "Well, they showed us some packages we weren't familiar with and they jumped on us early. That's what they do. We really played into their hand.

SEATTLE - First came the Seattle Seahawks' blowout victory, one of the most lopsided final scores in Super Bowl history. Then the unofficial celebration burbled up, a little Sunday night mayhem in polite Seattle fashion - a few torched sofas, a damaged historic building, maybe half a dozen arrests. A Twitter hashtag (#HowSeattleRiots) followed, with tweets mocking the ways a laid-back citizenry goes crazy when its home team wins the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the first time: “Throw garbage in the compost-only bin.” “The Priuses are honking.” “Wearing sandals without your socks.” Tuesday, the president called.

No one said it would be that easy, at least not publicly. Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll and his players spent two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl lauding the Denver Broncos, quarterback Peyton Manning and their seemingly unstoppable offense. However, privately Carroll and his players and staff believed a rout of the Broncos was possible. Actually, probable. On Sunday, in front of 85,529 at MetLife Stadium, the Seahawks made it happen, dominating Manning and the Broncos in every phase in a 43-8 victory.

So Denver, with the mile-high offense led by record-setting, ageless quarterback Peyton Manning, is a slight favorite over Seattle in Super Bowl XLVIII. Two points, three points or thereabouts, depending on your line of choice. Weather could play a factor, though, and if it snows or rains to make the going tough, look for the Seahawks' better running game and league-best defense to make it tough. Sam Farmer, The Times' NFL columnist who has spent a great deal of time with both teams, is picking the underdog.

The unraveling started when Omaha became Whoa-maha! The Denver Broncos' first snap of Super Bowl XLVIII sailed high over the right shoulder of Peyton Manning, and thus began the most monstrously disastrous game of his illustrious football career. Manning sat at an interview podium Sunday night and, his shoulders slumping under the weight of a 43-8 loss to Seattle, tried to wrap his head around how such a big game could go wrong so quickly. That errant snap was recovered by the Broncos in the end zone for a safety a mere 12 seconds into the game, the fastest score in Super Bowl history.

NEW YORK - Pete Carroll felt a lot of emotions Monday morning, hours after his Seattle Seahawks crushed Denver, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII. He was proud, excited, drained, satisfied. But not surprised. "We developed a mentality from the first day we start talking about these kinds of moments, because this is exactly what we envisioned from Day 1," Carroll said at the traditional most-valuable-player news conference. Linebacker Malcolm Smith, who played for him at USC, won that award.
