On this date: Happy ‘homecoming’ for Holmgren

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Nov. 1:

Cortez Kennedy

1999: Mike Holmgren returns to Lambeau Field and the former Packers coach gets a 27-7 victory over his old team on “Monday Night Football.” The list of Seahawks who chip in on Holmgren’s happy homecoming is a long one as cornerback Shawn Springs intercepts two passes and blocks a field goal; Cortez Kennedy registers three sacks of Brett Favre; Ricky Watters runs for 125 yards; Jon Kitna passes for two touchdowns; and linebacker Chad Brown has 12 tackles.

1987: The Seahawks push their record to 5-2 during the strike-interrupted season by posting a 28-17 victory over the Minnesota Vikings at the Kingdome as Dave Krieg passes for three touchdowns in the team’s third consecutive win.
