4. Rod Martin, Super Bowl XV

The only defensive player on our list of five, Rod Martin had a remarkable performance during the Raiders Super Bowl XV victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. An all-time player during his time in the Silver and Black, Martin played his best on the biggest of stages, and against Philadelphia, put on an effort for the ages.

Martin picked off Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski three times in the Raiders 27-10 victory, single-handedly ending drives throughout the game. In fact, Martin picked off the first pass of the game by Jaws, setting the stage for the Raiders dominating performance, clinching their second Super Bowl title.

In the fourth quarter, Martin picked off the Eagles last-ditch effort at getting back into the game, and it seemed like any time the Eagles tried to make something happen, there was Martin. During his career, Martin was one of the better linebackers to put on the Raiders uniform, and it is only fitting that he would play a huge role in such a big game in team history.
