The site named Raiders’ linebacker Rod Martin as the fifth-greatest interceptor in Super Bowl history based on a formula it devised.
Martin had a Super Bowl-record three interceptions in a Super Bowl XV win over the Philadelphia Eagles. In a Super Bowl XVIII win over Washington, Martin had a fumble recovery. But Martin, now 67, will always be remembered for his ownage on Eagles’ quarterback Ron Jaworski in Super Bowl XV.
Martin was a career Raider, playing 12 seasons after being a 12th round draft pick out of USC in 1977. And what a career he had! It’s cool to see him being honored for his role in Raiders and NFL Super Bowl history.
