Boyd’s 1997 Replay Game 100 (Week 8) Seattle at St. Louis

Seahawks complete largest comeback win in OT thriller

The Seattle Seahawks were down 21-0 in the 1st Quarter to the St. Louis Rams Sunday in the TWA Dome. The Seahawks fumbled away and threw a pick in four of their first five possessions of the game. Before they knew it, Rams’ QB Tony Banks threw 2 TDs and Lawrence Phillips ran in a TD to give the Rams the 21-0 lead.

Then Warren Moon and the Seahawks offense began to heat up. They scored 31 unanswered and erased the 21-point deficit and turned the game into a 10-pt lead 31-21.

The Rams showed some moxie, and they answered the call late in the 4th quarter. Jeff Wilkins booted a kick and then with 1:30 in the 4th, Banks connected with Keith Crawford for a 2-yd scoring strike to knot the game up at 31.

The game went into overtime and the Rams won the toss. They punted to the Hawks and on the next play Moon launched a bomb to Joey Galloway, who caught it and raced 80 yards for the game-winning score. The Seahawks capped off the largest come-from-behind victory in franchise history to win 37-31.

Moon threw for 298 yards and 4 TDs, while Banks threw for 317 yards and 3 TDs. Galloway caught 9 passes for 176 yards and 2 TDs, while Isaac Bruce caught 8 passes for 116 yards and a score. Rams RB Amp Lee caught 11 passes for 120 yards and a TD.

The Seahawks are now 4-3 in the AFC Weat and will host the Oakland Raiders next Sunday. The Rams have now lost three in a row and will host the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs in the TWA Dome next Sunday.

Moon hits a big shot to take down the Oilers

Warren Moon found his way out of Minnesota, and he is making an impact in the Pacific Northwest with the Seahawks. Moon and the Seahawks are now 3-3 in the tough AFC West as the Seahawks knocked off the Tennessee Oilers Sunday afternoon in the Kingdome.

Moon was without his top running back Chris Warren and his top target in Joe Galloway; however, he was able to find WR Mike Pritchard wide-open deep in the Oiler secondary and he hit him for a 74-yard bomb that put the game away, 23-13.

Moon threw for 280 yards and a TD. RB Lamar Smith replaced Warren and rushed for 66 yards and a TD.

The Seahawk defense held Oiler RB Eddie George to just 51 yards rushing and held the Oiler team to just 140 yards rushing. The D also recovered 3 Oiler fumbles and picked off Steve McNair once to seal the deal.

The Seahawks will go into their bye at 3-3, while the Oilers (2-3) will go home next week to face the Bengals.
