A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Dec. 26:
1982: Kenny Easley has 12 tackles, a sack and an interception, but it’s not enough as the Bengals hand the Seahawks a 24-10 loss in Cincinnati as Pete Johnson runs for two touchdowns.
1993: Rick Mirer passes to Paul Green for the game’s only touchdown and John Kasay kicks three field goals in a 16-6 victory over the Steelers at the Kingdome. Jon Vaughn also runs for 131 yards for the Seahawks.
1999: Jon Kitna passes for two touchdowns and the defense intercepts Elvis Grbac three times in a 23-14 victory over the Chiefs at the Kingdome. It is the Seahawks’ only win in their final six games and proves pivotal as the Seahawks capture the AFC West title over the Chiefs on the final weekend of the season, and in Mike Holmgren’s first season as coach.
2004: Shaun Alexander runs for 154 yards and three touchdowns, Darrell Jackson catches six passes for 101 yards and Chike Okeafor registers two sacks in a 24-21 victory over the Cardinals in Seattle.
2010: The Seahawks travel to Tampa on Christmas Day, and then drop a 38-15 decision to the Buccaneers as Matt Hasselbeck is injured during the game. Josh Freeman throws five touchdown passes and LeGarrette Blount runs for 164 yards for the Bucs.
