SUPER BOWL 18
Jan. 22, 1984
At Tampa, Fla.-72,920
Los Angeles 7.14.14..3-38
Marcus Allen rushed for a Super Bowl-record 191 yards on 20 carries and scored two touchdowns as the Raiders trounced the Redskins, 38-9.
The Raiders took a 7-0 lead 4:52 into the game when Derrick Jensen blocked Jeff Hayes' punt and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown.
Jim Plunkett hooked up with Cliff Branch for a 12-yard TD pass and a 14-0 lead. Washington cut the margin to 14-3 on a 24-yard field goal by Mark Moseley, but with 7 seconds left in the half, Washington coach Joe Gibbs called for a screen pass. Raiders linebacker Jack Squirek saw it coming and intercepted Joe Theismann's throw, jogging 5 yards into the end zone to give Los Angeles a commanding 21-3 halftime advantage.
Allen, voted the game's most valuable player, scored on runs of 5 and 74 yards, the latter a Super Bowl record and a brilliant effort, putting the Raiders ahead 35-9.
