Scores of people took to the streets in the city's Pioneer Square and Capitol Hill neighborhoods. Seattle police planned an increased presence throughout the city Sunday night. They sent a tweet on the department's widely followed Twitter account saying, ''Officers will be out and about citywide making sure everyone is celebrating safely.''
The Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8. The last time a major Seattle sports franchise won a championship was in 1979 when the Supersonics took the NBA title. The WNBA's Seattle Storm have won two championships, in 2004 and 2010.
Mayor Ed Murray says in a statement that a Seahawks victory parade would happen Wednesday.
