SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks enter the playoffs with a losing record. But the team’s beer-drinking fans are starting off with a win.

The team investigated after a video posted on YouTube demonstrated that the large and small beers sold at Qwest Field contained the same amount of liquid _ even though one was marked 20 ounces and cost $1.25 more than the one marked 16 ounces.

The findings? The cups that were marked as containing 16 ounces actually held 20 ounces of beer.

First and Goal, the organization that runs Qwest Field, says it will try to find out how long the smaller-beer drinkers have been getting an extra 4 ounces.

For Saturday’s game against the New Orleans Saints, the stadium is selling all 20-ounce domestic brews at the 16-ounce price.
