On this date: Seahawks defense paces big win over Chargers

Posted Dec 13, 2013

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Dec. 13.

1998: Cortez Kennedy returns a fumble 39 yards for a touchdown and the defense also intercepts a club-record seven passes in a 38-17 victory over the Chargers. Jay Bellamy, Darryl Williams and Shawn Springs each have two picks, and Terry McDaniel returns his 43 yards for a touchdown. Jon Kitna passes for one touchdown and runs for another.

1980: The Chargers take a 21-0 halftime lead and hold on for a 21-14 victory in San Diego, as Jim Jodat and Steve Largent score second-half touchdowns.

1981: Kenny Easley and John Harris intercept passes and Dave Krieg throws a touchdown pass to David Hughes, but it’s not enough in a 23-13 loss to the Broncos at Mile High Stadium.

1987: Dave Krieg throws three touchdown passes, including two to Ray Butler, and the defense sacks John Elway four times and intercepts him twice in a 28-21 victory over the Broncos at the Kingdome.

1992: Hershel Walker scores a touchdown with less than five minutes to play in regulation to tie the score and Roger Ruzek kicks a 44-yard field goal in overtime to give the Eagles a 20-17 victory over the Seahawks at the Kingdome. The defense sacks Randall Cunningham 10 times, including 2½ by Rufus Porter and Robert Blackmon and two by Cortez Kennedy, but the offense generates only 87 total yards.

2009: Andre Johnson catches 10 passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns – in the first half – as the Texans hand the Seahawks a 34-7 loss in Houston.
