Oakland Raiders Defeats Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI.  Fred Biletnikoff named MVP.

The Vikings took their place at the top of the Super Bowl frustration list with their fourth loss. The game was even more lopsided than the score. Oakland won on the ground, with Clarence Davis picking up 137 of Oakland's 266 rushing yards. The Raiders' defense held Minnesota's 1,100-yard rusher, Chuck Foreman, to only 44 yards. Biletnikoff caught four passes for 79 yards, including a 48-yard gain to set up the touchdown that put the game out of reach.

The Raiders won their first NFL championship before a record Super Bowl crowd plus 81 million television viewers, the largest audience ever to watch a sporting event.

The Raiders gained a record-breaking 429 yards, including running back Clarence Davis's 137 rushing yards.

Wide receiver Fred Biletnikoff made four key receptions, which earned him the game's most valuable player trophy. Oakland scored on three successive possessions in the second quarter to build a 16-0 halftime lead.

Errol Mann's 24-yard field goal opened the scoring, then the AFC champions put together drives of 64 and 35 yards, scoring on a 1-yard pass from Ken Stabler to Dave Casper and a 1-yard run by Pete Banaszak.

The Raiders increased their lead to 19-0 on a 40-yard field goal in the third quarter, but Minnesota responded with a 12-play, 58-yard drive late in the period, with Fran Tarkenton passing eight yards to wide receiver Sammy White to cut the deficit to 19-7.

Two fourth-quarter interceptions clinched the title for the Raiders. One set up Banaszak's second touchdown run, the other resulted in cornerback Willie Brown's Super Bowl-record 75-yard interception return.
