The Seahawks' Nike Elite jerseys roll on.

The club's current digs (No. 6 seed) have advanced to the "Elite Eight" in NFL.com's competition to determine the Greatest Uniform in League history, defeating the current jerseys of the New Orleans Saints (No. 7) by a final fan vote count of 69,231 to 39,251 in the round of 16.

The Seahawks are now matched up against the red and gold of the division rival San Francisco 49ers - the NFC current uniform bracket's No. 1 seed - who narrowly edged out the Green Bay Packers in Round 3.

Prior to besting the Saints, the Seahawks' current digs emerged victorious over the current uniforms of the New York Giants (No. 3) in Round 2, collecting 74,688 votes to the Giants' 35,085. That achievement came one round after more than doubling up on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No. 11), 51,937 to 25,689, to open bracket play. The Seahawks’ current jerseys and 1976 throwback digs were featured when NFL.com personality Dave Dameshek originally unveiled the competition two weeks back, but by way of fan vote only the club’s new jersey made it out of the competition’s first-round.

Voting for Round 4 concludes on Wednesday, July 17 at 6 p.m. PT. Until then, do what you do, 12th Man - continue to rock those votes.
