A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on Oct. 24:

Rick MIrer

1993: Rick Mirer throws a touchdown pass to Brian Blades with 25 seconds to play to give the Seahawks a 10-9 victory over the Patriots at the Kingdome. The TD pass comes on a third down play, and the Seahawks convert three other third-down situations in the 14-play, 54-yard drive as Mirer passes to Kelvin Martin for 7 yards on third-and-4, runs for 2 yards on third-and-1 and John L. Williams runs for 3 yards on third-and-1. Blades finishes with nine receptions for 90 yards, while Rod Stephens (15) and Eugene Robinson (12) combine for 27 tackles to pace the defensive effort.

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Sept. 26:

1993 – Linebacker Rod Stephens forces a fumble and recovers the ball in the end zone with 4½ minutes to play, icing a 19-10 victory over the Bengals in Cincinnati. Stephens finishes with eight tackles, while the defense also sacks Jay Schroeder five times and John Kasay kicks four field goals.

2004 – The Seahawks open the season 3-0 by shutting out the 49ers 34-0 at CenturyLink Field. The 49ers had scored in a league-record 420 consecutive games. While the defense is limiting the 49ers to 175 yards and nine first downs, Shaun Alexander scores three touchdowns.
