1997: Warren Moon passes for four touchdowns as the Seahawks finish 8-8 by slapping the playoff-bound 49ers with a 38-9 loss in the season finale at the Kingdome. Joey Galloway catches six passes for 101 yards and two scores, while Mike Pritchard has six receptions for 90 yards and a TD. The linebacking crew of Mike Barber, Chad Brown and Dean Wells leads the defensive effort by combining for 25 tackles.

1980: The Seahawks score twice in the fourth quarter, but the rally in their season finale falls short as they lose to the Broncos 25-17 at the Kingdome to cap a nine-game losing streak.

2003: Shaun Alexander runs for 135 yards and two touchdowns, including a 44-yarder, and the defense sacks Cardinals QB Josh McCown eight times in a 28-10 victory in Seattle.

2008: The Seahawks send Mike Holmgren out a winner in his final home game as coach with a 13-3 victory over the Jets on a snowy afternoon in Seattle. Maurice Morris runs for 116 yards and Seneca Wallace passes to John Carlson for the game’s only touchdown, while Josh Wilson intercepts Brett Favre twice.
