1983: Dave Krieg throws touchdown passes to Steve Largent and Paul Johns, and Curt Warner runs for 134 yards in a 27-19 victory over the AFC West rival Denver Broncos at the Kingdome, a key victory in a 9-7 season that saw the Seahawks advance to the playoffs for the first time in their first season under coach Chuck Knox.

2005: Shaun Alexander rushes for 173 yards and two touchdowns, including an 88-yarder to tie his franchise record, in a 33-19 victory over the Cardinals in Arizona that is win No. 4 in what will become a club-record 11-game winning streak.

2006: The Seahawks register nine sacks, including three by defensive tackle Craig Terrill, in a 16-0 victory over the visiting Oakland Raiders on “Monday Night Football.”
