On this date: One Giant victory

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Oct. 19:

1986: Jacob Green collects four sacks and Dave Brown intercepts two passes as the Seahawks post a 17-12 victory over the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants at the Kingdome. The Seahawks defeat both Super Bowl teams during the regular season (the Broncos being the other), but fail to make the playoffs despite a 10-6 record.

2003: The Seahawks beat the Bears 24-17 to complete the best start in franchise history (5-1) as Shaun Alexander runs for 101 yards and two touchdowns. The 1984 and 1986 teams also had started 4-1.

2004: Jerry Rice, the NFL’s all-time leading receiver, is acquired in a trade with the Raiders. Rice plays only one season with the Seahawks, catching 25 passes for 362 yards and three touchdowns.
