On this date: Fallen ceiling titles force Seahawks to move outdoors

Posted Aug 13, 2014

A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on Aug. 13

1994: The Seahawks play their first home game outdoors at the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium, beating the Buccaneers 29-6 in a preseason matchup, because the Kingdome is closed for repairs after ceiling tiles fell in July. Rick Mirer completes 8 of 12 passes for 118 yards in the second quarter, while first-round draft choice and defensive tackle Sam Adams scores with a fumble recovery before a crowd of only 43,633 fans.
