On this date: Ageless Warren Moon eclipses Raiders
1997: Warren Moon, at the age of 40, passes for 409 yards and five touchdowns in a 45-34 win over the Raiders at the Kingdome. Three of the TD passes go to Joey Galloway. Moon’s 409 passing yards prove to be the single-game high in the NFL for the season. Moon completes 28 of 44 passes, while Galloway catches seven balls for 117 and James McKnight four for 100.
1980: Jim Zorn throws a 67-yard touchdown pass to Steve Largent, who has four receptions for 142 yards. But the Seahawks are handed a 33-14 loss by the Raiders at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum as Jim Plunkett passes for three TDs to Bob Chandler. The Raiders also sack Zorn six times and Lester Hayes intercepts two of his passes.
1986: Curt Warner runs for 139 yards and Gale Gilbert throws a 24-yard touchdown passes to Steve Largent in a 20-13 loss to the Broncos at Mile High Stadium. Gilbert replaces Dave Krieg, who was 6 of 16 and also sacked five times. The loss is the first of four in a row before the Seahawks win their final five games.
2003: Former Seahawks QB Jon Kitna throws a 53-yard touchdown pass to Chad Johnson midway through the fourth quarter to lead the Bengals to a 27-24 victory in Cincinnati. Shayne Graham, another former Seahawk, kicked two field goals for the Bengals. The loss comes despite a 344-yard, three-TD passing performance by Matt Hasselbeck, who also is intercepted three times.
2008: Mike Holmgren collects regular-season victory No. 172 to move into sole possession of the 10th spot on the NFL’s all-time list as the Seahawks defeat the 49ers 34-13 in San Francisco – where Holmgren grew up and also coached. Leonard Weaver catches four passes for 116 yards, including touchdowns of 62 and 43 yards, and Josh Wilson returns an interception 75 yards for a TD.
