            Seahawks to Face Former AFC West Rival Raiders

[cid:image001.jpg at 01CB775E.FAFA4D10]Winners of three of their last four, the Seahawks head south to take on former AFC rival the Raiders. The game is slated to kick off at 1:15 p.m. (PT) and will be televised on FOX (channel 13 in Seattle) and broadcast on 97.3 FM and 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle. Calling the game for a second time this season on FOX will be Ron Pitts and John Lynch.

There is a long history between the Seahawks and Raiders when both teams were members of the AFC West from 1977-2001. The Seahawks are 23-27 all-time vs. the Raiders in the regular season. The 50 games played against the Raiders are the second-most against any other team besides the Denver Broncos whom the Seahawks have faced 52 times.

In the regular season, the Seahawks are 9-17 in games played at the Raiders; posting a 4-10 mark in Oakland and a 5-7 mark in Los Angeles. The Raiders moved from Oakland to Los Angeles in 1982 and back to Oakland in 1995.

In the last meeting on November 6, 2006 on Monday Night Football, the Seahawks shut out Oakland in Seattle, 16-0, behind seven sacks and holding Oakland to 185 yards of offense. Craig Terrill recorded a career-high 3.0 sacks.

The Seahawks and Raiders have squared off twice in the postseason with each team winning once. Seattle lost to the Los Angeles Raiders 30-14 in the 1983 AFC Championship Game in the Seahawks first-ever conference title appearance on January 8, 1984. The following season, Seattle returned the favor defeating the Raiders 13-7 in the AFC Wild Card Game.
