Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson says his team has “every right” to try to win a title for the first time since the 1980s.
“I think it’s a matter that the Seahawks have every right to try and win a championship,” Wilson said Friday.
“You never know what’s going to happen, so you just have to take it one day at a time.”
Wilson’s team is coming off a season that was the most entertaining of his career, culminating with a wild, 3-1 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
The Seahawks won their fourth straight division title and finished fifth in the NFC West.
The Seahawks won the Super Bowl in 2013, beating the Denver Broncos in overtime in Super Bowl XLVII.
Wilson was named MVP of that game, but the Seahawks’ championship was vacated because of an NFL investigation into the handling of the team’s bounty program.
The Super Bowl was the first in the history of the league to be broadcast live in the U.S. from Seattle.
