On this date: First shutout in franchise history

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Nov. 13:

1977: The defense posts the first shutout in franchise history by intercepting three passes to limit the Jets to 25 passing yards – and 124 total yards – and Jim Zorn throws two touchdown passes in a 17-0 victory at Shea Stadium.

1983: Steve Largent catches eight passes for 155 yards and three touchdowns, but the Cardinals scored five points in the final seven minutes to pull out a 33-28 victory in St. Louis.

1988: Dave Krieg returns after missing seven games with a shoulder separation and directs a 10-play drive to setup Norm Johnson’s game-winning 46-yard field goal with one second remaining in a 27-24 victory over the Oilers at the Kingdome. John L. Williams also runs for 102 yards and a touchdown.

2005: The Seahawks pick up win No. 5 in what will become a club-record 11-game winning streak as Shaun Alexander runs for 165 yards and three touchdowns a 31-16 victory over the Rams in Seattle.

2011: The Seahawks snap a three-game losing streak in emphatic fashion with a 22-17 upset of the 6-2 Ravens at CenturyLink Field. Aided by a series of punishing lead blocks from fullback Michael Robinson on Pro Bowl middle linebacker Ray Lewis, Marshawn Lynch runs for 109 yards and a touchdown, while Steven Hauschka kicks a franchise-tying five field goals. Ravens QB Joe Flacco throws 52 passes, as Ray Rice gets only five carries.
