NFL America's Game: 1980 Oakland Raiders Super Bowl XV
Nobody loves reclamation projects more than Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis. Jim Plunkett knew this. A former Heisman winner out of Stanford, Plunkett was cast out of New England and then released by San Francisco before arriving at Davis' doorstep in 1978. It proved to be a perfect match. In week 6 of the 1980 season, head coach Tom Flores gave Plunkett his chance. From there, he rewarded the team's confidence in him by leading Oakland to Super Bowl XV. There, backed by a renegade defense led by the incredible Lester Hayes, Plunkett won game MVP honors with two touchdown passes to Cliff Branch as Oakland beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 27-10. Join NFL Films as they retell the story of the one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history. America's Game uses exclusive interviews with Plunkett, Matt Millen, and Gene Upshaw to recount Oakland's second championship season!
