That famous run has been documented here, in depth, and requires no additional copy. I'm indebted -- or perhaps ungrateful -- to Fanhouse's Sportz Assassin for drawing my attention to this Tecmo Bowl reenactment of Marcus Allen's 74 yard run in a victory over Your Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII. Some revenge belonged to us, however, as Allen's then 191 rushing yards on the day was a record later owned by Redskin Timmy Smith, on his 204 yards in Super Bowl XXII. Free Timmy Smith!
