SUPER BOWL 11

Jan. 9, 1977

At Pasadena, Calif.-103,438

Oakland 0.16..3.13-32

Minnesota 0..0..7..7-14

The Raiders won their first NFL championship and the Vikings dropped their fourth Super Bowl in as many tries.

After a scoreless first quarter, Oakland scored 16 second-quarter points behind the running of Clarence Davis, who finished with 137 yards on 16 carries, and the pinpoint passing of Ken Stabler.

Trailing 19-0 in the third quarter, the Vikings got on the board with an 8-yard Fran Tarkenton pass to Sammy White. But on the ensuing drive Stabler hit Fred Biletnikoff for 48 yards to set up a 2-yard plunge by Pete Banaszak.

Defensive back Willie Brown iced the game in the fourth quarter with a 75-yard interception return for a touchdown.

In each of its four Super Bowl losses, Minnesota failed to score in the first half. The Vikes were outscored in the four games 95-34 and managed a total of 227 yards rushing (55.4 yards per outing) on 90 carries for a 2.5-yard average.

Biletnikoff caught four passes for 79 yards to earn MVP honors.
