Most Valuable Player: Marcus Allen, Los Angeles Raiders
The Raiders offense jumped out early while the defense stifled the Redskins' attack.
The Raiders dominated this game from start to finish. Make no mistake, this was the Marcus Allen Show.

All Allen did was run for a Super-Bowl record 191 yards on 20 carries and also had a pair of touchdown runs, a five-yard scamper and a record 74 yarder, exceeding the previous best of 58 set by Tom Matte of Baltimore in Super Bowl III.

The Raiders jumped out early when Derrick Jensen blocked a Jeff Hayes punt and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown. Jim Plunkett added a 12-yard TD pass to WR Cliff Branch to complete a three-play, 65-yard drive.

The rout was the largest in Super Bowl history, exceeding the previous beating Kansas City received vs. the Green Bay Packers (35-10) in Super Bowl I.

The win propelled Raiders' head coach Tom Flores to an 8-1 playoff record. The 38 points scored by the Raiders were the highest total in Super Bowl history, exceeding that of Green Bay's 35 in Super Bowl I.
