Seahawks Memory Lane: More on the 1983 Season

New, comments



You may remember a couple weeks ago when I featured a couple of YouTube videos that captured the Seahawks' victory over Dan Marino and the Dolphins from the 1983 NFL Playoffs. The Seahawks had made their first trip to the NFL Playoffs after finishing 9-7 in Chuck Knox's first year, finishing second in the AFC West behind the 12-4 Los Angeles Raiders - the team they'd eventually lose to in the AFC Championship and the team that would go on to win SuperBowl XVIII, 38-9 over the Washington Redskins.

Before that huge win, in the opening round, the Seahawks defeated the Broncos 31-7 in front of 60,000 fans at the Kingdome. They did so on the arm of Dave Kreig (200 yards passing, three touchdowns) and with the legs of rookie running back Curt Warner (99 yards rushing). On New Year's eve, 1983, the Seahawks faced off against Dan Marino's Dolphins and won 27-20 with a second half comeback, to advance to the AFC Championship game. If you missed it, and want to go back and watch the whole game in it's entirety, click here.
