Friday links: Seahawks hoping for more Monday Night magic

For Friday’s paper, I took a look back at Seattle’s Monday Night Football history, and also took a stab at rating Seattle’s top ten MNF games. That’s sort of an eye-of-the-beholder thing, no doubt about it, and it’s designed mostly to just be a fun walk down memory lane.

The bigger picture also is that Seattle has had lots of success on MNF. Here are the top MNF records:

Seattle 19‐8 .704
San Francisco 44‐25 .638
Carolina 7‐4 .636
Pittsburgh 40‐24 .625
Indianapolis 21‐13 .618

No doubt a record the Seahawks hope to make look a little more glittering this Monday night when they take on the New Orleans Saints in one of the marquee games of the season.
