SEATTLE, Nov. 30 -- Rookie Bo Jackson rushed for a team-record 221 yards on 18 carries and scored three touchdowns, including a 91-yard scoring sprint in the second quarter, leading the Los Angeles Raiders to a 37-14 victory over Seattle tonight.
The Raiders (4-7) who were previously eliminated from the playoff chase, ended a seven-game losing streak with their first victory at the Kingdome since 1981. They were outscored, 70-3, in their previous two visits to Seattle.
Jackson, enticed by Raiders' owner Al Davis to go from the Kansas City Royals into the NFL for a five-year, $7.4-million contract, had a 2-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. On that play, he carried Seahawks' $11-million rookie linebacker Brian Bosworth into the end zone.
Jackson had a 42-yard run on the scoring drive as the Raiders went from a 27-7 halftime advantage into a 33-7 lead.
The loss kept Seattle (7-4) from moving into a tie with San Diego (8-3) for first place in the AFC West, and dropped the Seahawks into third place behind Denver (7-3-1).
In just his fifth pro football game, Jackson also caught a 14-yard scoring pass from Marc Wilson in the second quarter. Wilson also had a 46-yard touchdown pass to James Lofton in the first quarter.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound 1985 Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn broke the Raiders' single-game rushing record of 200 yards, set by Clem Daniels against the New York Jets in 1963.
The Seahawks, who had won four of five games after the NFL players' strike ended, scored on Dave Krieg touchdown passes of 19 yards to Daryl Turner in the opening quarter and 3 yards to Mike Tice in the third quarter.
The Raiders, now 25-5-1 on Monday nights, exploded for 20 points in the second quarter for a 27-7 halftime lead as Jackson scored on his 91-yard run and the 14-yard pass from Wilson.
Jackson, who scored his first two NFL touchdowns in a Raiders' loss to Denver in Los Angeles eight days ago, had 122 yards rushing on seven carries in the opening half.
The Seahawks took a 7-0 lead with a touchdown after Jackson's fumble was recovered by Fredd Young on the Seattle 36. They went 64 yards in nine plays, with Krieg passing 19 yards to Turner in the end zone.
Los Angeles tied the score, 7-7, at 12:27 of the first quarter when Wilson passed 46 yards to Lofton for a touchdown.
The Raiders broke the 7-7 tie when Jackson caught his 14-yard touchdown pass from Wilson at 2:41 of the second quarter.
Los Angeles made it 21-7 on Jackson's 91-yard touchdown run down the left sideline, the longest touchdown run from scrimmage in the Raiders' history and the longest touchdown run from scrimmage against the Seahawks. L.A. Raiders 7 20 10 0 37 Seattle 7 0 7 0 14
