A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks’ history that occurred on Sept. 7:
1986 – The Seahawks win their opener 30-0 over the Steelers at the Kingdome, as the defense intercepts three passes – including one that Dave Brown returns 18 yards for a touchdown – and linebackers Fredd Young, Keith Butler and Greg Gaines combine for 26 tackles. Dave Krieg also passes for two touchdowns and Curt Warner runs for 114 yards.
2003 – The Seahawks post their first season-opening victory at home since 1986, 27-10 over the Saints as Shaun Alexander scores two touchdowns and linebacker Anthony Simmons paces the defense with an 11-tackle performance.
