NFL at 100: Seattle had to top 49ers on way to 1st title

SEATTLE (AP) — It took winning a Super Bowl and celebrating the championship for Bobby Wagner to gain a bit of clarity.

As joyous as it was for Seattle to win its first title in franchise history on that chilly night at the New Jersey Meadowlands, the game that felt more like a championship contest happened two weeks earlier.

That would be the NFC championship game: Seattle 23, San Francisco 17.
