As the week leads up to the Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, the walks down memory lane are abound. The Super Dome has stood since 1975 so there are a great many Super Bowls that have been played in the iconic structure.
The second of those Super Bowls came in 1981 pitting the Raiders and the Eagles. In that game, Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski was intercepted three times by Raiders linebacker Rod Martin en route to a decisive 27-10 Raiders victory. That game still pains Jaworski to think about.
"The farther I get removed from that game, the more pain I feel," said Jaworski on ESPN's NFL Live broadcast. "We only had one opportunity to win a World Championship and we didn't get it done. You think we're all going to win three or four [Super Bowls] but it doesn't happen that way so it still pains me."
