A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Feb. 1.

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Feb. 1:

2014: Walter Jones, a nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle, is elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. His selection comes the day before the Seahawks would win their first Super Bowl. In another first, the announcement of Jones' election comes as part of the nationally televised "NFL Honors" ceremony on Saturday night at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan. 

1998: Warren Moon is named MVP in the Pro Bowl after leading the AFC to a 29-24 victory. Moon directs the AFC to points on each of his three series, including his 1-yard TD run with 1:49 left to play. Moon also passes to Tim Brown for a 57-yard gain that sets up Eddie George's 4-yard TD run in the fourth quarter and the Seahawks' Michael Sinclair recovers a fumbled snap that leads to Moon's decisive score. Darryl Williams also recovers a fumble in the game.

1987: Fredd Young recovers a fumble to set up the only touchdown in the game as the AFC wins the Pro Bowl 10-6. Jacob Green also recovers a fumble and has a tackle for a loss, while Steve Largent and Bobby Joe Edmonds also are on the NFC squad.

2015: The Seahawks' quest to become the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the Patriots after the 2003 and 2004 seasons ends abruptly when Russell Wilson's pass from the 1-yard line to Ricardo Lockette is intercepted at the goal line by the Patriots' Malcolm Butler with 20 seconds left in Super Bowl XLIX to preserved New England's 28-24 victory. The Seahawks take a 24-14 lead into the fourth quarter, but Tom Brady throws two TD passes to rally the Patriots. Marshawn Lynch rushes for 102 yards and a TD, while Matthews catches four passes for 109 yards and a TD. Bobby Wagner (12), K.J. Wright (11), Kam Chancellor (10) and Earl Thomas (nine) combine to make 42 tackles for the Seahawks.
