Percy HarvinJoe Camporeale/USA TODAY SportsWhere do the Seahawks rank among the past 10 Super Bowl champions?

They didn't own the regular season; 13-3 is a fine record, sure, but not one for the history books. However, the way the Seattle Seahawks ended their campaign was something to behold. Basically dominating from the first play from scrimmage, Pete Carroll's team smashed the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII, allowing them to join the list of NFL champions in style. Does this make them the best title winner from the past 10 seasons? Click on the images below to set your rankings!
