On this date: Final game played at Kingdome

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Jan. 9



In the last game ever played at the Kingdome, and the team's first playoff game in 11 years, the Seahawks take a 17-10 lead in the third quarter on Charlie Roger's 85-yard kickoff return only to have the Dolphins score 10 fourth-quarter points to win the wild-card game 20-17. The Kingdome, which had been the Seahawks' home since 1976, is imploded on March 26 to make room for construction of their new stadium.


Assistant coaches George Dyer, Rod Perry, Joe Vitt, John Becker and Chick Harris leave the Seahawks to join the staff of former coach Chuck Knox with the Rams.
