The 1998 Seattle Seahawks season was the team's 23rd season with the National Football League. A late-season loss to the New York Jets came due to a controversial call when Jets quarterback Vinny Testaverde ran in a touchdown but was downed short of the goalline yet the play was ruled a touchdown; the loss helped knock Seattle out of the playoffs. The 1998 season was the final season for head coach Dennis Erickson.

Vinny Testaverde's touchdown on fourth down from the five yard line with 20 seconds remaining gave the Jets the victory. Replays showed that Testaverde's helmet crossed the goal line, but not the ball. This play is widely attributed as being responsible for bringing back instant replay to the NFL in 1999.[5]
