Are you ready for some football? The Seahawks sure are.

When it comes to Monday night, nobody in the NFL has dominated on the national stage more than the Seahawks. Just how much have they dominated? Well, they haven’t suffered a loss on Monday night in over a decade. Since that game, they are 9-0, outscoring opponents 235-82, while shutting out opponents in three such games.

 Seahawks on Monday Night Football: 

  • 21-9 all-time MNF record = highest win percentage on Monday Night Football in the NFL (.724)
  • 15-5 all-time on MNF at home
  • 9-0 in last nine games, outscoring opponents 235-82 in those games
  • Seahawks didn’t play a MNF game for three seasons from 2008-2010.
  •  Since Pete Carroll took over, Seahawks are 13-2 in primetime games.

They’ll look to make it an even 10 in a row on Monday as they take on the winless Lions at CenturLink Field. Here’s the promo:

And for some old school flavor, here’s a promo from 1980:

To help get you ready for Monday’s game, we take a trip back in time and look at more than a decade of Seahawks’ Monday Night Football games. Scroll through to relive all the greatest Monday night moments:

Dec. 6, 2004: Cowboys 43, Seahawks 39

Leading 39-29 with 2:46 to play, the Seahawks had all but locked up a solid win over an NFC playoff contender, but that was far from reality on this Monday night. The Cowboys open the wild fourth quarter with a 12-point lead, which was quickly erased by Shaun Alexander and the Seahawks, who rattled off 22 unanswered points to start the quarter. But Dallas answered back for the game’s final 14 points, as a Julias Jones (remember him?) touchdown with 32 seconds remaining provided the final gut punch in a heart-wrenching finish for Seattle.

Dec. 5, 2005: Seahawks 42, Eagles 0

2005 was a magical season for the Seahawks, and this Monday Night Football game might have been the Seahawks’ best game of that season. The Seahawks’ defense stifled the Eagles, and also acted as the team’s best offense — scoring three touchdowns on interceptions.

After consecutive losses and a disappointing 4-3 start to the season, the Seahawks showed up on the national stage and laid the smack down on the struggling Raiders, racking up nine sacks in all.

Nov. 27, 2006: Seahawks 34, Packers 24

After missing six games because of a broken foot, reigning MVP Shaun Alexander returned to action in a prime-time matchup on Monday Night Football. Alexander didn’t miss a beat, rumbling to a season-high 201 yards against the Packers as the Seahawks ousted Green Bay in snowy Seattle, 34-24.

Sept. 24, 2012: Seahawks 14, Packers 12

Does this one even need an explanation? In the words of Mike Tirico, it was “one of the craziest finishes you’ll EVER see.” With the Seahawks trailing 12-7 and eight seconds remaining, Russell Wilson dropped back to the 40-yard line and lofted a ball to the left corner of the end zone. Catch? No Catch? That’s all been debated ad nauseam. What is clear, though, is that this game was one for the books.

Dec. 2, 2013: Seahawks 34, Saints 7

This matchup of NFC heavyweights set up to be a Monday Night Football goldmine. The Saints came into CenturyLink Field riding high off of three-straight NFC wins and a 9-2 record, while the Seahawks entered the contest with a league-best 10-1 record. But what looked like a dream matchup soon turned into a nightmare for the Saints and for ESPN, as the Seahawks made quick work of Drew Brees and company en route to a 34-7 drubbing.

Oct. 6, 2014: Seahawks 27, Washington 17

Ho-hum, another Monday night win for the Seahawks. This one didn’t have the same zest as some of the other MNF victories for Seattle, as the Seahawks cruised past Washington with relative ease. Regardless, it marked the ninth-straight Monday night victory for the Seahawks, and setup another Super Bowl season.
