1977: The Seahawks are held to 129 total yards, including a 2-of-15, 19-yard passing effort by Jim Zorn, in a 22-10 loss to the Oilers at the Kingdome.

1983: Dave Krieg passes for 420 yards and three touchdowns and Paul Johns catches nine passes for 116 yards, but it’s not enough in a 38-27 loss to the Broncos in Denver. The Seahawks then won three of their last four games to advance to the playoffs for the first time in Chuck Knox’s first season as coach.

1994: Mack Strong scores on a 7-yard run with 42 seconds remaining in a 22-21 victory over the Buccaneers at the Kingdome. Chris Warren also runs for 116 yards.

2005: The 49ers score the final 13 points, but the Seahawks hang on for a 27-25 victory in San Francisco – win No. 6 in what will become a franchise-record 11-game winning streak. Shaun Alexander runs for 115 yards and two touchdowns.
