1997 – The Seahawks set a franchise record by holding the Colts to 118 yards in a 31-3 victory in Indianapolis. Linebackers Chad Brown (three sacks) and Winston Moss (nine solo tackles) lead the defensive effort against the Jim Harbaugh-led Colts, while Warren Moon passes for one touchdown and runs for another.

2003 – In the Seahawks’ first shutout since 1998, rookie safety Ken Hamlin has a hand in four of the team’s six takeaways – including a forced fumble on the first play of the game and an interception at the Seattle 8-yard line with four seconds remaining – in a 38-0 victory over the Cardinals in Arizona. Safety Reggie Tongue interceptions two passes and linebacker Randall Godfrey returns a fumble for a touchdown, while Matt Hasselbeck throws two touchdown passes to Darrell Jackson and runs for a third.
