A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Dec. 22:

1984: Dan Doornink carries the ball 29 times for 126 yards as the Seahawks rush for 205 yards in handing the defending Super Bowl champion Raiders a 13-7 loss in a wild-card playoff game at the Kingdome. Dave Krieg, who completes only 4 of 10 passes, throws 26 yards to Darryl Turner for the Seahawks' only touchdown. The defense shuts out the Raiders until midway through the fourth quarter as it sacks Jim Plunkett six times, including 2.5 by Jacob Green, and intercepts him twice.

1991: The Seahawks win their final game under coach Chuck Knox 29-9 over the Rams in the season finale at the Kingdome as James Jones runs for two touchdowns. Knox would return to the Rams as their coach in 1992.

1996: Michael McCrary registers four sacks, Lamar Smith runs for two touchdowns and Joey Galloway catches a 32-yard TD pass from Gino Torretta as the Seahawks rally for a 28-21 victory over the Raiders in Oakland. The sack barrage in the season finale allows McCray to finish with an AFC-leading 13.5.

2002: Shaun Alexander runs for two touchdowns, Matt Hasselbeck passes for 303 yards, Rian Lindell kicks three field goals, Reggie Tongue intercepts two passes and Anthony Simmons has 11 tackles and an interception in a 30-10 victory over the Rams in Seattle.

2013: The Arizona Cardinals come into CenturyLink and do something no team has done in 2012 or 2013 – beat the Seahawks. The Cardinals' 17-10 victory snaps the Seahawks' franchise record 14-game home winning streak. The Seahawks intercept Carson Palmer four times, including two by Richard Sherman. But the offense generates only 192 yards as Russell Wilson is 11 of 27 passing.
