The offensive contributions to the 37-0 shutout include Curt Warner running for 116 yards and two touchdowns and Dave Krieg throwing TD passes to Steve Largent and Ray Butler.
1991: John Taylor catches a 15-yard touchdown passes from Steve Bono early in the fourth quarter and the 49ers hold the lead for a 24-22 victory at the Kingdome. John Kasay kicks three field goals for the Seahawks.
1996: The Seahawks jump to a 16-0 lead and hold on for a 26-18 victory over the Bills at the Kingdome as Todd Peterson kicks four field goals and Chris Warren runs for 116 yards. With Rick Mirer completing 9 of 24 passes, Rick Tuten is called upon to punt nine times and averages 46.3 yards with a long of 66 yards.
