On this date: Seahawks upset eventual Super Bowl champs

A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on Oct. 9:

2011: The Seahawks upset the eventual Super Bowl champions Giants in the Meadowlands as backup QB Charlie Whitehurst throws a touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Doug Baldwin with less than three minutes to play and cornerback Brandon Browner ices the 36-25 victory by intercepting an Eli Manning pass that went off Victor Cruz and returning it a club-record 94 yards for a TD with 68 seconds remaining. The Seahawks pull out the win, their only victory in a five-game span, despite Manning passing for 420 yards.
