Oakland linebacker Rod Martin intercepted Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski 's first pass of the game and returned it 17 yards to Philadelphia's yard line, setting up Jim Plunkett 's 2-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Cliff Branch seven plays later.
After each team punted once, Jaworski threw a yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Rodney Parker , but the score was nullified by an illegal motion penalty on wide receiver Harold Carmichael , and the Eagles ended up being forced to punt. The Raiders later scored another touchdown with about a minute left in the quarter. On third down from the Oakland yard line, Plunkett threw the ball to running back Kenny King at the yard line as he was scrambling around in the backfield to avoid being sacked.
King caught the pass as it carried just over the outstretched arms of defensive back Herman Edwards and took off to the end zone for a Super Bowl record yard touchdown reception. The Eagles managed to respond on their next drive, with Jaworski completing passes to tight end John Spagnola and Wilbert Montgomery for gains of 22 and 25 yards on a yard drive that ended with a yard field goal by Tony Franklin , making the score 14—3 five minutes into the second quarter.

The Raiders then took the opening kickoff of the second half and scored quickly. Plunkett completed a yard pass to King and a yard completion to receiver Bob Chandler to move the ball to Philadelphia's yard line.
Then after a 4-yard run by running back Mark van Eeghen , Plunkett threw a yard touchdown pass to Branch, increasing Oakland's lead to 21—3. The Eagles responded by driving 56 yards to the Raiders yard line, but on third down and 3, Jaworski threw his second interception of the game to Martin. Oakland subsequently drove 40 yards and scored with Bahr's yard field goal, increasing their lead to 24—3. The Eagles finally managed to score a touchdown that counted early in the fourth quarter to cut their deficit to 24— Starting from their own yard line, a yard reception by receiver Charlie Smith sparked an yard, play drive that was capped by Jaworski's 8-yard touchdown pass to tight end Keith Krepfle.
But on their ensuing drive, Oakland marched from their own 11 to the Eagles yard line. Philadelphia kept the Raiders out of the end zone, but Bahr kicked his second field goal, increasing Oakland's lead to 27— Oakland's defense then dominated the rest the game, forcing two turnovers on Philadelphia's last 2 possessions of the game to prevent any chance of a comeback. Following a Raiders punt, Martin recorded a Super Bowl record third interception, and the Raiders ran out the clock to win the game.
