The Los Angeles Raiders crush the Washington Redskins 38-9 in Super Bowl XVIII at Tampa Stadium. The Redskins seeking a second straight Lombardi Trophy had no answer for Marcus Allen, who rushed for a record 191 yards, with two touchdowns. Allen was named Super Bowl MVP as his 74-yard touchdown run became the game’s signature play. It was the third Super Bowl title for the Raiders in eight years; they have not won one since.
