It was 29 years ago tonight when Raiders rookie running back Bo Jackson introduced himself to the nation on Monday Night Football.

Jackson’s iconic 91-yard touchdown run into the Kingdome tunnel and his flattening of Seahawks linebacker Brian “The Boz” Bosworth on another TD run helped build the legend of Bo. Jackson not only finished with 221 yards rushing and three touchdowns, he essentially helped finish Bosworth’s career in the process.

Which Jackson touchdown 29 years ago is most memorable for you?
