On this date: Seahawks set NFL record with four interception returns for TDs

Posted Nov 4, 2013

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Nov. 4.

1984: The Seahawks set an NFL record by returning four interceptions for touchdowns – and 325 yards – in a 45-0 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at the Kingdome. Cornerback Dave Brown has scoring returns of 90 and 58 yards, while strong safety Kenny Easley adds a 58-yarder and cornerback Keith Simpson a 76-yarder. Cornerback Terry Taylor also has two interceptions as the Seahawks set a franchise record with six picks (a mark that was broken in 1998 when they had seven against the Chargers).

1979: The Seahawks are held to a NFL-record minus-7 total yards in a 24-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at the Kingdome. Their lone first down comes on a pass to Steve Largent.

1990: The Seahawks are held to 194 yards in a 31-14 loss at the Kingdome as the Chargers also return a punt 63 yards for a touchdown and recover a fumble in the end zone for another score.

2001: Shaun Alexander runs 41 yards for a touchdown and Trent Dilfer throws a 46-yard TD pass to Darrell Jackson, but the Redskins intercept three passes in posting a 27-14 victory over the Seahawks at FedEx Field.

2007: Nate Burleson returns a punt 94 yards for a touchdown in a 33-30 overtime loss to the Browns in Cleveland, becoming the first player in NFL history with three punts returns of 90-plus yards in his career.

2012: Russell Wilson throws three touchdown passes and Marshawn Lynch runs for 124 yards and a TD to offset a 182-yard, two-TD rushing performance by the Vikings’ Adrian Peterson as the Seahawks open the second half of a season where they would win seven of their final eight games with a 30-20 victory at CenturyLink Field.
