VIDEO: Remembering When Bo Jackson Ripped the Longest Run in Raiders History
One of the greatest athletes of all-time was star running back Bo Jackson for the Oakland Raiders, and that greatness was on full display during this record-breaking run against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Set up on the team's 8-yard line, Jackson took the pitch toward the left sideline with a head full of steam. With a rare combination of size, speed, and power, seeing a player like Jackson getting the ball on a pitch is a defender's nightmare.
The Bengals' nightmare came to life, as Bo got through the traffic nearly untouched. Then, there was nothing but green ahead of the running back, and nobody on the field is prepared to win a race with him.
The result was a record-setting 92-yard score and a finger gun celebration from Jackson. The previous record for the longest run in franchise history was also set by Jackson, who ran for a 91-yard touchdown during his rookie season. Despite playing just four NFL seasons, his legacy as one of the best lives on forever.
Of course, Jackson's record-breaking run is no longer the franchise's record. That honor goes to then-quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who bested Bo by a single yard.
