EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – It's not exactly CenturyLink Field, but the Seahawks fans are making themselves comfortable in New Jersey.
Seahawks fans are known for being loud, and they're desperate for the franchise's Super Bowl championship. They've come out in full force from the Pacific Northwest.

Manhattan swarmed with Seahawks fans all week, and although the crowd seemed to be roughly 50-50 at the stadium, or perhaps a little tilted towards Seattle fans, the Seahawks' faithful were making their presence felt by being really loud early in the game. Their noise, which was noticeable especially because Super Bowls are notoriously quiet, might have affected the first play from scrimmage. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was walking up to make some calls at the line when center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball. It flew over Manning's head and the Seahawks ended up with a safety. You don't see miscommunication like that often in a neutral site game.
Seattle fans are well known for being loud. The noise travels pretty well too, it turns out.
