Twelves deal with longer lines amid tightened security at game

SEATTLE -- Amid heightened concerns surrounding large crowds following the Paris attacks, fans at the Seahawk’s game saw tightened security.

The FBI and our local authorities have said there are no known threats to the US, but the NLF and Seattle Police still didn’t want to take any chances making sure fans were safe tonight.

Fans dealt with longer security lines.

“It's a little slower than other days but you know with what happened in Paris you have to do it,” one fan said while waiting for his turn to go through security.

Seattle Police provided more officers to patrol around the stadium and throughout the city.

“Any time an incident of this nature takes place, it`s a reminder to all of us that we have to be particularly vigilant,” Seattle Police Chief O’Toole said.

The NFL asked fans not to bring bags to the game, but not everyone listened. While bags were allowed in, thorough checks slowed things down for everyone.

Further reassuring fans, the NFL put out a statement saying they are closely monitoring events and have been in communication with the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.

“I figured Seahawks in Seattle had me covered,” Logan Stacey said confidently.

The Seahawks mirrored all NFL teams tonight with a moment of silence before the game to honor the victims of the attack. After that moment of silence two helicopters flew an American and a French flag across the stadium, which was received with a standing ovation
