On this date: Alexander runs wild

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Sept. 29:

1991 – Chris Warren scores on a 59-yard punt return – the first by a Seahawk since 1986 – and QB Dan McGwire makes his first NFL start in a 31-3 victory over the Colts at the Kingdome. The Seahawks also rush for 168 yards, as Derrick Fenner and John L. Williams each run a TD. McGwire is replaced in the second half by Jeff Kemp, who throws a TD pass to Tommy Kane. Cortez Kennedy and Rufus Porter collect two sacks each to pace the defensive effort.

2002 – Shaun Alexander sets an NFL record by scoring five times in the first half of a 48-23 win over the Vikings at Seahawks Stadium. Alexander scores on an 80-yard screen pass as well as runs of 2, 20, 3 and 14 yards. Reggie Tongue also returns an interception 46 yards for a TD, as the Seahawks score four times in a 1-minute, 47-second blur at the end of the first half.
