October 12, 1986

A Week 6 victory for the Los Angeles Raiders was more than just any victory against the Seattle Seahawks, as it marked the 200th victory against an AFC opponent for the Raiders.

The Raiders came in just 2-3 on the season and looking to reach .500.

All the scoring for the Raiders was done in the first half on two touchdown passes by quarterback Jim Plunkett. The quarterback found receiver Dokie Williams for a nine-yard score in the first quarter and then found receiver Jesse Hester for a 49-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

The Raider defense was then given the task of preserving the victory. They would allow a field goal in the second quarter and a touchdown in the third, but held on in the fourth quarter to get the win and give the franchise win number 200 against the AFC.

That season, the Raiders would finish 8-8 and fail to make the playoffs.
