A look at the memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Dec. 22:
1984: Dan Doornik carries the ball 29 times for 126 yards as the Seahawks rush for 205 yards in handing the defending Super Bowl champion Raiders a 13-7 loss in a wild-card playoff game at the Kingdome. Dave Krieg, who completes only four of 10 passes, throws 26 yards to Darryl Turner for the Seahawks’ only touchdown. The defense shuts out the Raiders until midway through the fourth quarter as it sacks Jim Plunkett six times, including 2½ by Jacob Green, and intercepts him twice.
1991: The Seahawks win their final game under coach Chuck Knox 29-9 over the Rams in the season finale at the Kingdome as James Jones runs for two touchdowns. Knox would return to the Rams as their coach in 1992.
1996: Michael McCrary registers four sacks, Lamar Smith runs for two touchdowns and Joey Galloway catches a 32-yard TD pass from Gino Torretta as the Seahawks rally for a 28-21 victory over the Raiders in Oakland. The sack barrage in the season finale allows McCray to finish with an AFC-leading 13½.
2002: Shaun Alexander runs for two touchdowns, Matt Hasselbeck passes for 303 yards, Rian Lindell kicks three field goals, Reggie Tongue intercepts two passes and Anthony Simmons has 11 tackles and an interception in a 30-10 victory over the Rams in Seattle.
