5. Marcus Allen's 74-yard TD Run

Date: 1/22/1984
Super Bowl: XVIII
Matchup: Raiders vs. Redskins
Location: Tampa, FL

This run might be one of the craziest, most absurd gallops in the history of the NFL; we defy you to find a more outrageous display of speed and athleticism on so grand a stage. When Marcus Allen completely reverses field, you have to remember that he's not doing it against just anybody. These were professional athletes on a Washington Redskins defense that was the defending Super Bowl champion and one of the most feared units in the league. Allen's run effectively put the Redskins down for good, as the Raiders went on to win the game 38-9 on the strength of their star running back's MVP-winning, 191 rushing yards performance.
