1976: Jim Zorn throws a touchdown pass to tight end John McMakin for the Seahawks’ only score, as the Bears put up 34 points and 509 yards in a loss that is No. 4 in a five-game losing streak to close Seattle’s inaugural season.
1982: Marcus Allen rushes for 156 yards and two touchdowns for the Raiders, who take a 28-0 lead and hold on for a 28-23 victory in Los Angeles as Jim Zorn passes for two touchdowns.
1993: Brian Blades catches seven passes for 134 yards, but Marcus Allen runs for three touchdowns as the Chiefs hand the Seahawks a 31-16 setback at the Kingdome.

2005: The Seahawks run their winning streak to eight in a row with a 42-0 victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia on “Monday Night Football” in a game where neither team has more than 200 yards in total offense, as Andre Dyson returns an interception 72 yards and a fumble 25 yards for touchdowns; Shaun Alexander scores twice; and Lofa Tatupu also returns an interception 38 yards for a TD.
