The Seattle Seahawks are home to the 12th man in the NFL and one Washington high school took that honor to heart and created a human 12th man flag.

The fans of the Seahawks boast the loudest stadium experience in the NFL and that certainly was the case throughout the past two seasons as the team only lost one game at the home of the 12th man. That lone loss came to the Arizona Cardinals.
The Seahawks homefield advantage may be the biggest intangible in the NFL today as opposing offenses have difficulty making line adjustments and audibles as a result of the raucous crowd.
The crowd may have been the difference in Sunday’s NFC Championship game vs. their NFC west rival San Francisco 49ers as they forced Colin Kaepernick into three late turnovers, including an interception in the final minute after a Richard Sherman deflection on a pass intended for Michael Crabtree.
The Seahawks will take on the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
