Oakland Raiders: 5 best individual Super Bowl performances
By Brad Weiss
5. Cliff Branch, Super Bowl XV
The Raiders topped the Philadelphia Eagles by the score of 27-10 in Super Bowl XV, as they got incredible efforts from some legendary players. One such player was wide receiver Cliff Branch, who finished the game with five receptions for 67 yards, including two touchdown grabs that helped the Raiders to an easy victory.
Branch got the party started early on, opening the score on a two-yard touchdown grab from quarterback Jim Plunkett. Later in the game, Branch opened up the scoring in the second half as well, this time finding the end zone from 29 yards out.
A three-time Super Bowl champion, Branch tied the Super Bowl record for touchdowns in a game, and would follow up his performance with a six-catch, 94-yard effort with a touchdown in Super Bowl XVIII.
