1997: Warren Moon passes for four touchdowns as the Seahawks finish 8-8 by slapping the playoff-bound 49ers with a 38-9 loss in the season finale at the Kingdome. Joey Galloway catches six passes for 101 yards and two scores, while Mike Pritchard has six receptions for 90 yards and a TD. The linebacking crew of Mike Barber, Chad Brown and Dean Wells leads the defensive effort by combining for 25 tackles.

2003: Shaun Alexander runs for 135 yards and two touchdowns, including a 44-yarder, and the defense sacks Cardinals QB Josh McCown eight times in a 28-10 victory in Seattle.

2008: The Seahawks send Mike Holmgren out a winner in his final home game as coach with a 13-3 victory over the Jets on a snowy afternoon in Seattle. Maurice Morris runs for 116 yards and Seneca Wallace passes to John Carlson for the game’s only touchdown, while Josh Wilson intercepts Brett Favre twice.

On this date: ‘Jacksonville’ Seahawks down Redskins

Posted by Clare Farnsworth on November 19, 2012 – 10:35 am

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Nov. 19:

Defensive end Michael Sinclair
