Seahawks – Raiders Rivalry Runs Deep [VIDEO]
As the Seattle Seahawks take on the Oakland Raiders in their pre-season finale, we look back to a time when these two teams were bitter division rivals in the AFC West.
The Seahawks found a home for many years in the National Football League’s American Conference Western Division. They established some heated rivalries with their division opponents Denver, Kansas City, San Diego and the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders.
These organizations beat each other up for years, especially during the 1980s, when both the Seahawks and the Raiders had really good teams.
In one of their match-ups from 1987, two rookies were on stage for a Monday night game. Seattle had linebacker Brian Bosworth, one of the most colorful players ever to play college football. The Raiders had running back Bo Jackson, who had won the Heisman Trophy at Auburn.
Watch what happened when these two stars went against each other.
