SEATTLE - There will be more eyes in the sky and on the ground at Sunday's championship game against the 49ers.

An Army Blackhawk helicopter has already been spotted making aerial security sweeps over SODO. Seattle Police say it's routine for an Army helicopter to do security sweeps in advance of such a high-profile event.

During the game, fans will see more police in and around the stadium.

Detective Mark Jamison said, "We're not anticipating any problems, but in the off chance there is we want to be able to get there quickly and deal with it."

Other agencies will be keeping a watchful eye as well. King County and Washington State Patrol are beefing up their numbers during and after the game.
