The NFL Network has gone wall-to-wall today with its reporting of Al Davis' passing. They've featured interviews with a number of football luminaries, including Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones, and celebrity fans like rapper Ice Cube.
The coverage will continue into the evening with two special presentations on the Oakland Raiders and Davis. At 5:30 PM pst/8:30 PM est, NFL Network will air "Al Davis: #1 For All Time" - a one hour documentary produced by NFL Films on the late-Raiders owner. Then at 6:30 PM PST/9:30 PM EST, they will air highlights from Super Bowl XVIII between the Raiders and Washington Redskins, including this record-setting 74-yard-run by hall-of-fame running back Marcus Allen.
Not only was the victory in Super Bowl XVIII the Raiders third and last Super Bowl win, but it was also their only championship during their 12-year stint in Los Angeles.
