The 2001 Seattle Seahawks season was the team's 26th season with the National Football League, finishing the season at 9–7. The Seahawks were in the playoff hunt until the very last game of the season; Baltimore's win over Minnesota on the last Monday Night game of the year ended Seattle's post-season bid. The 2001 season was the final season for the Seahawks in the American Football Conference and the second and final season they played at Husky Stadium while Qwest Field was being built.
Before the season, the Seahawks signed free agent quarterbacks Trent Dilfer and Matt Hasselbeck. The Seahawks also signed defensive tackle John Randle, who spent the last 11 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. Hasselbeck eventually won the starting position over Dilfer.
The season saw the emergence of second year running back Shaun Alexander after Ricky Watters was injured for most of the season.
