The Seahawks did their home opener in style Sunday night, trouncing the San Francisco 49ers 29-3. Click through the photos to see Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren’s take.

A San Francisco 49ers fan gets heckled by a barfront full of Hawks fans prior to the game.

Speaking of the 12th man, fans at Century Link attempted to break the world record for loudest outdoor stadium. They succeeded twice, setting the new record at 136.6 decibels: equivalent to a military jet engine at takeoff power.

Of course mother nature attempted to set some noise records of her own at the stadium. The game faced a nearly hour long weather delay in the first half due to severe thunderstorms in the area.

Already enjoying a lead at the rain delay, pumped up players came up to pump up the fans before getting back to the game.

Meanwhile this fan decided to tough it out, sans cover, with his beer.

Which reminds us; the game. Seattle crushed San Francisco, shutting them down over and over throughout the night.

Like here.

For all the great defense though, it was the Hawks offense that won the day. In particular Hawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a stellar night, putting down three touchdowns.

Well, most of them anyways.
