The Immaculate Reception The most talked about play in NFL history was the 'Immaculate Reception' in a 1972 Steelers-Raiders playoff game. Franco Harris caught a last-minute touchdown pass from Terry Bradshaw. Under 1972 NFL rules, an offensive player could not legally catch a forward pass that had been last touched by a teammate. To this day a debate rages about who last touched the ball before Harris. Was it Jack Tatum of the Oakland Raiders or Frenchy Fuqua of the Pittsburgh Steelers? Judge for yourself.

George Blanda passes at age 83 George Blanda, the ageless Hall of Fame quarterback and kicker with the Oakland Raiders, has died. He was 83. The Raiders confirmed the death Monday and issued a statement saying "we are deeply saddened by the passing of the great George Blanda. George was a brave Raider and a close personal friend of Raiders owner Al Davis." Blanda retired a month shy of his 49th birthday before the 1976 season, playing longer than anyone else in pro football history. He spent 10 seasons with the Chicago Bears, part of one with the Baltimore Colts, seven with the Houston Oilers and his final nine with the Raiders. He scored 2,002 points in his career, a pro football record at the time of his retirement, kicking 335 field goals and 943 extra points, running for nine touchdowns and throwing for 236 more.

Heidi Game 1968 The 'Heidi Game' is a derisive nickname given to the New York Jets-Oakland Raiders AFL game played on Sunday, November 17, 1968. It was a much-anticipated marquee clash between two 7-2 teams that was regionally televised by NBC. Well, it was partially televised by NBC--and that was the problem. The game, scheduled for a 4 p.m. eastern start, ran beyond the three-hour time frame allotted to it by the network. At 7 p.m., with the Jets leading 32-29 with 65 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, NBC abruptly cut away from the football broadcast without warning to its scheduled programming: a made-for-TV version of the children's classic 'Heidi.' (NBC had been heavily promoting the movie as part of sweeps week.) Outraged football fans swamped NBC and its affiliates with angry phone calls. They became even angrier after viewers learned that Oakland had scored two touchdowns in the final minute to win 43-32. The uproar reached the front page of the next day's New York Times and national newscasts. The result was that after 1968, pro football broadcasting agreements required the networks to show games in their entirety.

John Madden Lite Beer Commercial Before John Madden became a familiar voice on NFL broadcasts, he was the fiery, hyperenergetic coach of the Oakland Raiders. Madden parodies himself in this Miller Lite Beer commercial from 1980.

Holy Roller Play 1978 Raiders-Chargers One of the wildest finishes in NFL history occurred in Week #2 of the 1978 season. The Oakland Raiders defeated the San Diego Chargers 21-20 on a dubious touchdown on the last play of the game. Despite two obvious intentional forward fumbles, the play was legal under 1978 NFL rules. After the season the rules were changed to prevent the offensive team from advancing the ball on a fourth-down fumble. This clip shows NBC's coverage of the final drive that led to the infamous "Holy Roller." Jim Simpson calls the play.
