A must-win for Oakland was realized with the likes of Ira Matthews, league-leading interceptor Lester Hayes, and Comeback Player of the Year Jim Plunkett. The Raider QB scrambled for the only TD of the 9-3 Oakland victory.
Five sacks of Terry Bradshaw sent a message throughout the league: the Oakland Raiders were back. So was QB Jim Plunkett, who completed a masterful TD pass to Morris Bradshaw for a 45-34 Raider win.
