Alexander, who would set an NFL single-season record with 28 touchdowns, scores on runs of 4, 5, 1 and 23 yards as part of his 144-yard afternoon.

1983: The Seahawks force eight turnovers and register eight sacks in a 38-36 win over the Raiders at the Kingdome. The defensive line of Jacob Green (3½), Joe Nash (2) and Jeff Bryant (1½) combine to sack Jim Plunkett seven times.
