By this time, the Redskins were making their 4th appearance at Super Bowl. Doug Williams was the MVP of Super Bowl XXII, even though he entered this football season as a “backup” he still came out on top. The Redskins scored a shocking 35 points during the second quarter alone. During the Super Bowl, Williams was recorded 18 out of 29 passes, which made for a record 340 yards, four touchdowns with one interception. It’s safe to say that Doug Williams was on fire during Super Bowl XXII.
The cost of a 30 second commercial in 1988 at Super Bowl XXII was $645,000! The halftime show included Chubby Checker and The Rockettes, which made for a very interesting show. The National Anthem was sung by Herb Alpert and the Super Bowl was aired on ABC’s network. The announcers were a little different this year with it being Al Michaels, Frank Gifford, and Dan Dierdorf. However, there were still around 80.14 viewers this time around.
