The Raiders Franchise began in 1960 as part of the American Football League, then joined the NFL in 1970 when the divisions merged. Since then they have been a force to be reckoned with and are considered one of the most polarizing teams in football (people either love or hate them). Along with some impressive stats, here are some things you might not know about the Raiders…
Division Championships: 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1983, 1985, 1990, 2000, 2001, 2002
Super Bowl Championships: XI, XV, XVIII
- Raiders running back Marcus Allen was the first player in the history of the NFL to gain more than 10,000 yards rushing and more than 5,000 yards receiving during his career.
- When John Madden retired as head coach of the Raiders (after ten years in the position), he had won a Super Bowl ring, would eventually be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and 42 was the youngest coach ever to reach 100 victories.
- The Raiders franchise is the only NFL team to win championships in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
- When the Raiders won Super Bowl XV over the Philadelphia Eagles, they become the first Wild Card team ever to win the big game.
