1997: Warren Moon, at the age of 40, passes for 409 yards and five touchdowns in a 45-34 win over the Raiders at the Kingdome. Three of the TD passes go to Joey Galloway. Moon’s 409 passing yards prove to be the single-game high in the NFL for the season. Moon completes 28 of 44 passes, while Galloway catches seven balls for 117 and James McKnight four for 100.

2008: Mike Holmgren collects regular-season victory No. 172 to move into sole possession of the 10th spot on the NFL’s all-time list as the Seahawks defeat the 49ers 34-13 in San Francisco – where Holmgren grew up and also coached. Leonard Weaver catches four passes for 116 yards, including touchdowns of 62 and 43 yards, and Josh Wilson returns an interception 75 yards for a TD.
