A look at the memorable – and not-so-memorable – moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Dec. 14:

1986: Dave Krieg passes for four touchdowns, including two in the fourth quarter, in a 34-24 victory over the Chargers in San Diego that is part of a five-game winning streak to close the season.

1997: Todd Peterson kicks a 49-yard field goal with 2:20 remaining in a 22-21 victory over the Raiders in Oakland. Peterson’s kick caps a 19-point second half for the Seahawks, who trailed 21-3 at halftime.

2003: Shaun Alexander runs for 126 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown, but the Rams hang on for a 27-22 victory in St. Louis.

2006: Frank Gore runs for 144 yards and Alex Smith passes for two touchdowns as the 49ers beat the Seahawks in a Thursday night game in Seattle that is preceded by heavy rain and followed by high winds, a combination that causes power outages throughout the region.

2008:  Olindo Mare kicks a 27-yard field goal as time expires to give the Seahawks a 23-20 victory over the Rams in St. Louis. Mare also kicks 50- and 28-yarders, while Jordan Babineaux returns a fumble 24 yards for a TD.
