1988 - 16th game of the season Winner takes AFC West division title Seattle vs. Oakland
This is a shoot out between two bitter rivals in the AFC West with the winner taking the title and the loser going home. In a very high scoring game the Seahawks win their first Western Division title in the history of the franchise. The Seahawks enter the Oakland Coliseum and a very angry crowd and put on their best at the end of a comeback season.
The Raiders fielded a team that had Jay Schroeder, Todd Christensen, Howie Long, Tim Brown, Bo Jackson, Marcus Allen, and Willie Gault.
The Seahawks have back Coach Chuck Knox, Dave Krieg, John L Willams, Mike Tice, Steve Largent, Curt Warner, Norm Johnson, and Dave Brown.
In 1988 Steve Largent continued to make history as he set the career record in receiving yards, as the Seahawks win their first 2 games. However in the 3rd game QB Dave Krieg suffers a shoulder separation and misses nearly 2 months as the Seahawks barely keep their head above water at 5-5. When Krieg returned the Seahawks would catch fire winning 3 of their final 4 games to capture their first AFC West title with a 9-7 record.
Seattle 43, Oakland 37 Game Highlights
Dave Krieg passes 32 times, completing 19 for 410 yards and 4 TD'' s.
John L. Williams has a total of 236 yards rushing and receiving.
