The Seattle Seahawks have the distinction of being the only NFL team to change conferences twice.  The inaugural 1976 team played in the NFC West before switching to the AFC West the following season. Beginning in the 2002 season, the Seahawks switched back over to the NFC West after the NFL realigned when the Houston Texans became the 32nd team in the league.

The Seahawks spent 25 years in the AFC West, so obviously, most games have been played against those four teams. 

This is a list of the top 10 opponents that the Seahawks have played, listed by games played. There are three teams that are non-divisional foes and seven who have been.

I have also listed the largest margin of victory and defeat to each opponent. I also have stated my most memorable games from each series, through my eyes.

Very nice list, but you seem to be forgetting someone...
Super Bowl XL sound familiar?
It's the Steelers!

They've only played 17 times. The list goes by times played.

Sweet article. Are the Seahawks the only team to play in both the AFC and NFC?

In 1976 the Seahawks were in the NFC West and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in the AFC West. The next year Seattle went to the NFC West and the Bucs joined the Bears, Lions, Packers and Vikings in the NFC Central. Then when the Texans joined in 2003, they just realigned all the divisions. So Seattle moved back to the NFC West. So, technically, the Buccaneers played in both conferences too, but Seattle switched twice.

Seattle went to the AFC West in 1977, not the NFC West... mistyped that one.
