Tweets tell the story of the Seattle Seahawks victory over the Minnesota Vikings

For the tenth time this year, the Seahawks won a regular season football game. For the thirteenth time in Russell Wilson‘s career the team has won a game at home, paired with zero losses. The Seahawks are good, and as you’ll notice at the end of this, the 49ers may not be as good as we though. Additionally, the Seahawks have a bye next week, and after that they play the 49ers’ Week 11 opponents, the New Orleans Saints, for what figures to be homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.

But Minnesota was in town this week, so tweets!

Also, no more of The Wave.


I love you Sidney, even if most don’t.
