Riggins’ Super Bowl Run 1/30/1983 (8/11)

With the Dolphins leading 17-13 with 10 minutes remaining in the game, the Redskins faced a fourth-and-1 situation at the Dolphins’ 43-yard line. This dilemma called for the running back affectionally called “The Diesel”.

Pro Football Hall of Famer John Riggins took a handoff from quarterback Joe Theismann, ran over Dolphins defensive back Don McNeal and then raced to the end zone for the decisive score. Riggins was a workhorse in the Redskins’ first Super Bowl win, carrying the ball a Super Bowl-record 38 times for 166 yards.
