A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Dec. 29:

Matt Hasselbeck

1984: Steve Largent catches six passes for 128 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown, and John Harris intercepts two passes but the Seahawks are eliminated from the playoffs in a 31-10 loss to the Dolphins at the Orange Bowl as Dan Marino throws three TD passes.

1994: Tom Flores is relieved of his duties as general manager and head coach five days after a season-ending 35-9 loss to the Browns in Cleveland. Flores leaves with a three-season coaching record of 16-32.

2002: Matt Hasselbeck passes for a franchise-record 449 yards and two touchdowns in leading a 31-28 overtime victory against the Chargers in San Diego. Hasselbeck’s 1-yard TD run ties the score with 1 second left in regulation and Rian Lindell kicks a 24-yard field goal five minutes into OT to win it. Koren Robinson catches nine passes for 103 yards and Itula Mili seven for 119, and John Randle collects three sacks, as the Seahawks close the season with their third consecutive victory.
