1977: Jim Zorn passes for four touchdowns, including two to Steve Largent, but the Chargers’ Fred Dean also intercepts a Zorn pass and returns it 22 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown in San Diego’s 30-28 victory at the Kingdome.

1980: Tackle Ron Essink, who lines up as a tight end on the play, scores on a 2-yard pass from Jim Zorn in the fourth quarter to prevent the Seahawks from being shutout in a 51-7 loss to the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day in Dallas.

1983: Norm Johnson kicks a 42-yard field goal with two seconds left in regulation to tie the game and then hits another 42-yarder in overtime as the Seahawks claim a wild 51-48 victory over the Chiefs at the Kingdome. Curt Warner runs for 207 yards and three touchdowns and Dave Krieg passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns as the Seahawks roll up 531 total yards.

1986: Curt Warner runs for 122 yards and Dave Krieg passes for two touchdowns in a 31-14 Thanksgiving Day victory over the Cowboys in Dallas. The victory is part of a five-game winning streak to close the season.

1994: John Kasey kicks a 32-yard field goal with 1:42 to play to give the Seahawks a 10-9 victory over the Chiefs at the Kingdome on a day to remember for two running backs. Chris Warren surpassed 1,000 yards in the 12th game of the season, the earliest it had been done in franchise history; and Curt Warner is inducted in the team’s Ring of Honor. Coupled with a 22-21 victory over the Buccaneers the week before, it also marked the first time in club history that the Seahawks win back-to-back games by one point.

2005: Josh Brown kicks a 36-yard field goal in overtime for a 24-21 victory over the Giants in Seattle. But the game is even more memorable because Jay Feely misses three game-winning field goals and the Giants are penalized 16 times, including 11 false-start penalties. It also is win No. 7 in what becomes a club-record 11-game winning streak.

2006: It is Green Bay in Seattle as snow covers the field during a 34-24 victory over the Packers on “Monday Night Football.” Shaun Alexander runs for 201 yards on a club-record 40 carries. Josh Brown also kicks four field goals and Matt Hasselbeck passes for three touchdowns against his former team.

2011: The Redskins score 16 fourth-quarter points to pull out a 23-17 victory over the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, despite Marshawn Lynch rushing for 111 yards and scoring on a 20-yard pass. The loss is wedged between a two-game winning streak and a three-game winning streak for the Seahawks.
