Seahawks Vs Raiders 1987 – Monday Night Showdown

This game is brought to us by ABC sports. In the Seattle Kingdom. (Before it was demolished) This was a great showdown between two emerging teams in the division, the Los Angeles Raiders Vs. the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks had a 5 game winning streak at home coming into the game so surely they were the favorite to win.

Here is the game film: Follow along..


Bo Jackson vs Bosworth was a big anticipation for this game. But the real story is for the Raiders being able to make the playoff’s. The Seahawks were already a lock. The Raiders are coming in with a bad record if they get behind in a game it’s hard for them to recover and stay competitive.

The games first score went to mike Tice catching a TD in the first quarter after a beautiful pass from the QB. Next the Raiders would receive the kickoff and make a quick strike returning the ball to the 40 yard line. The next play however, the Raiders qb would through an awful pass that got intercepted by a Seahawk. The game slowed down and got boring for a little while until Bo Jackson took a handoff and beat all the Seahawks to the endzone for a 88 yard TD run.

Overall the raiders could not hang with the Seahawks and ended up losing at the end of the game. The players all showed great heart and respect at the end of the game. Which is what football is all about.
