"Our Best Performance of the Year"
Green had four of Seattle's seven sacks to set a Seahawks game record. He had the previous high of 3 1/2 against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1983. Paul Moyer, linebacker Fredd Young and nose tackle Joe Nash had the other sacks.
"I had help," said the 6-3, 257-pound Green. "It's not just a one-man game. Other guys put the pressure on Simms.
"We had been called "Sad Sacks' and "Sack Ladies," Green said. "That bothered us."
New York linebacker Lawrence Taylor, the NFL 1986 and career leader in sacks, had none against the Seahawks.
