On this date: Seahawks play first game in state-of-the-art stadium

Posted Aug 10, 2014

A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on Aug. 10

2002: The Seahawks play their first game in their new stadium, losing 28-10 to the Colts in a preseason matchup. The bigger loss, however, is Trent Dilfer spraining a knee ligament after completing each of his five passes for 59 yards on a game-opening, 66-yard drive that ends with his 20-yard touchdown pass to James Williams. Dilfer, who had been named the starter over Matt Hasselbeck during the offseason, is injured on the third series and does not return until the second week of the regular season.
