The Seahawks are certainly original under coach Pete Carroll.

There has never been any doubt about that from the music that plays during practice right down to the final scores of their games.

Especially the final scores of games.

Seattle’s 46-18 victory over the Colts was notable on Sunday because it was the first time in NFL history that a game ended with that specific final. That’s nothing new, however.

Rawls goes from healthy scratch to plain healthy

In each of Carroll’s eight seasons with the Seahawks, they have played one game that has ended with a final score that is unprecedented in league history. Those unique final tallies were listed by Mookie Alexander, who not only has an awesome name, but used the term “Scorigami” over at

As for whether it’s significant?

“I think that’s freaking awesome,” Carroll said. “Isn’t that cool? How does that ever happen? I mean, it happens once or twice, it’s happened eight years in a row … I don’t know if that’s ever happened before.”

Of course, one of those novel scores is bound to be the local favorite: Seattle’s 43-8 victory over Denver in the Super Bowl.

This is one streak that Seattle will have some say in extending.

“We could shoot for ‘em,” Carroll said, “That’s right. We can start planning. I’m not worried about this year, but next year, we’ll obviously get that underway. Figure out how to take care of business there.”

Here’s a list of the unprecedented NFL scores the Seahawks have been involved in during Carroll’s tenure, as listed by Field Gulls:

2010: at Seattle 36, Arizona 18

2011: Seattle 36, at N.Y. Giants 25

2012: at Seattle 58, Arizona 0

2013: Seattle 43, Denver 8 (Super Bowl LXVIII)

2014: at Seattle 36, Green Bay 16

2015: at Seattle 39, Pittsburgh 30

2016: at Seattle 37, San Francisco 18

2017: at Seattle 46, Indianapolis 18
