Correct me if I am wrong here but didn't the Seattle Seahawks used to be in the AFC?

I clearly remember watching them play the Oakland Raiders, who are in the AFC, in a playoff game back in the late 70's or early 80's.
Thanks to all who answered this for me. For some reason I still can't make it register in my mind that they are now in the NFC. You can take the team out of the conference but you can't take the conference out of the team, in my eyes anyway.
The game that I referred to featured Stabler for the Raiders against Jim Zorn for Seattle. The Seahawks won it 27-7.
My memory was a tad foggy on that. The actual game I was referring to was not a playoff game but a regular season game. It was week 8 Oct. 22, 1978 against Stabler and the Raiders. The score was 27-7 Seattle.

They did, they got moved over when the divisions got restructured, so that the west team would be in the west.

Yes. They used to be in the same division as the Raiders, Broncos, Chiefs, and Chargers.

Yes, they used to be in the AFC West.
But when they had the expansion teams added and made a total of 32 teams they were moved to the NFC West along with Arizona so that all divisions were equal with 4 teams each.
They also tried to make them as geographically similar as they could.
