On this date: Players’ strike begins

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Sept. 13:

1987 – The players’ strike begins, forcing the cancellation of one game and teams to play with replacement players in three others. The Seahawks replacement team goes 2-1, helping the club finish 9-6 to clinch an AFC wild-card playoff spot.

2009 – The Seahawks win their first game under coach Jim Mora, 28-0 over the Rams at CenturyLink Field. Matt Hasselbeck passes for three touchdowns – two to tight end John Carlson – and Julius Jones breaks a 62-yard scoring run. The Rams get into Seahawks’ territory only three times, and fail to score by missing a field goal and turning the ball over on downs as three Marc Bulger passes fall incomplete inside the Seattle 8-yard line.
