COMMENTARY | With three championships to their name, the Raiders have provided some of the most electrifying plays in Super Bowl history.
There are several moments that didn't make the list, as it was nearly impossible to narrow it down to five.
Rod Martin's three interceptions on Ron Jaworski in Super Bowl XV was well worthy of a mention, as was Pete Banaszak's two-touchdown performance in Super Bowl XI.
Here are five of the most memorable plays in Raiders' Super Bowl history:
1. Marcus Allen's Run (Super Bowl XVIII)
The Los Angeles Raiders weren't supposed to beat the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII, let alone destroy them.
Running back Marcus Allen helped solidify that victory when he broke off the most memorable run in Super Bowl history.
Allen took Jim Plunkett's handoff and ran left, only to be met by a swarm of defenders.
Without missing a beat, Allen cut back all the way across the field, and found an opening that he broke through like a track star.
Allen turned the ball up the field and left every defender in the dust as he slammed the door on the Washington Redskins.
The play should've been stopped for a two-yard loss, but Allen took the handoff 74 yards and helped secure the Raiders' third Super Bowl championship.
He was rightfully-named Super Bowl M.V.P. after finishing the game with 20 carries for 191 yards and two touchdowns.
2. Willie Brown's Interception (Super Bowl XI)
It was only fitting that "Old Man Willie" sealed Oakland's first Super Bowl Championship when he returned a Fran Tarkenton interception 75 yards for a touchdown to put the Raiders up 32-7 in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XI.
As the experienced leader of the "Soul Patrol," Brown made Oakland's secondary one of the nastiest units in NFL history.
Brown made sure the crowd of 103,000 had something to remember him by as the Raiders defeated the Vikings 32-14.
3. Kenny King's 80-yard Score (Super Bowl XV)
As Jim Plunkett frantically scrambled for an open receiver, he lobbed a pass over the outstretched arm of Philadelphia Eagles' defender Herm Edwards for his running back Kenny King.
King caught the pass and dashed down the left sideline without an Eagle anywhere close to him.
It was an 80-yard touchdown that put the Raiders up 14-0 en route to a 27-10 victory in Super Bowl XV.
The Raiders became the first wild-card team to win a Super Bowl that year, and it made Ron Jaworski forever hate the silver and black.
4. Jack Tatum's Forearm Shiver on Sammy White (Super Bowl XI)
Jack Tatum was the hardest hitting defensive back to ever play in the NFL. Just ask Sammy White.
On a cool January afternoon in Pasadena, Fran Tarkenton found White across the middle of the field for a completion, but the Assassin had other ideas.
As White hauled in the pass, Tatum came across the field and delivered his signature forearm shiver.
White managed to hang on to the ball, but the same couldn't be said for his helmet as it helplessly rolled on the grass.
Tatum's hit wasn't a game-changing play, but man was it fun to watch.
It was also a symbol of how nasty Oakland's defense really was in the 1970s.
5. Derrick Jensen's Punt Block (Super Bowl XVIII)
He wasn't a household name, but Derrick Jensen played an MVP-type game for the Los Angeles Raiders in Super Bowl XVIII.
Jensen blocked a Washington punt in the first quarter, then recovered it in the end zone to put the Raiders up, 7-0.
It's difficult enough to block a punt and then recover it for a touchdown, let alone do it on the biggest stage in the world. Not to mention it was the first blocked punt of Jensen's career.
It was the only catalyst the Raiders needed as they manhandled the Redskins by a final score of 38-9.
