Seattle hosts Arizona tonight. When the Seahawks began play in 1976, their first game was at home against the Cardinals – a 30-24 loss in the Kingdome. Who were the starting quarterbacks in the game?


For the then-St. Louis Cardinals, Jim Hart. For the Seahawks, Jim Zorn. Both quarterbacks threw 2 TDs in the game. Zorn threw for 292 yards, which was a monstrously huge total for that era. The Cardinals were helped along by a pair of 100-yard rushers, with Jim Otis running for 140 yards and Terry Metcalf running for 113.
