Seattle travels to Houston – First Time Since 1994

This week Seattle travels to Houston to face the Texans for the first time in team history in Texas. The teams first met in 2005 in Seattle. Kickoff is slated for 10 a.m. (PT) and will be televised on FOX (channel 13 in Seattle) and broadcast on 97.3 FM and on 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle.

This week’s game will mark only the second time the two teams have faced each other since Houston’s inaugural year of 2002. On October 16, 2005, on ESPN’s Sunday Night Football, Shaun Alexander rushed for four touchdowns and 141 yards on 22 carries, as Seattle set a club-record with 320 yards on the ground. With the ground game working, Matt Hasselbeck attempted only six passes in the second half, completing four, in the Seahawks 42-10 victory.

Seattle’s last trip to Houston was in 1994 to play the Oilers on December 11. The Seahawks won that game, 16-14. Seattle was 2-4 all-time in games played in Houston vs. the Oilers, including playoffs.

    Can any one tell me why Houshmanzadeh isn’t being thrown to? Also, is it me or is Hassleback scared to stay in the pocket and deliver the ball!
