Over the past week in sports, we watched as the Seattle Seahawks -- in fluorescent green uniforms -- clinched the NFC West to secure a spot in the playoffs once again.

On the other side of the country, an emotional Tom Brady added to his historical win total with a victory over the Ravens in Foxboro.

Elsewhere, Army beat Navy in their annual game, the Speed Skating World Cup was held in the Netherlands and the coveted Heisman Trophy was handed out.
