A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Oct. 24

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.

1999: The Seahawks start what will become a five-game winning streak in their first season under coach Mike Holmgren with a 26-16 victory over the Bills at the Kingdome. Jon Kitna throws two touchdown passes to Derrick Mayes and Todd Peterson kicks four field goals.

2010: Olindo Mare kicks five field goals and Mike Williams has a 2-yard touchdown catch among his 11 receptions as the Seahawks hand the Cardinals a 22-10 loss in Seattle.
