Seattle Seahawks Groz’s Week 6 Seahawks Memory: Looking back on 1st win in team history

1976 was the year the NFL arrived in Seattle and Tampa Bay with the expansion. The Seahawks actually started in the NFC for that first year while the Bucs were in the AFC and the two teams were set to meet in Week 6 in Tampa. They called it the “Expansion Bowl.”
The NFL had made it especially tough to compete, so it was no big surprise that both teams had started 0-5, though the Seahawks appeared to be the better club. Jack Patera’s team took chances.
The week before, Seattle had taken a 13-point third quarter lead over the Green Bay Packers before falling short by a touchdown. Seattle had lost their opener by only six points and trailed Dallas in another game by just one score entering the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay hadn’t really been too competitive at all being, shut out three times in five games while being outscored 120-26.
