Marinovich was knocked out of the game twice but returned each time. Marinovich cut his passing hand when it hit the helmet of one of his blockers, Steve Wisniewski. Jay Schroeder replaced Marinovich briefly. The next time the Raiders got the ball, Marinovich fumbled the first snap and recovered it for a 5-yard loss, but he had the wind knocked out of him. He again was replaced by Schroeder for only a short time.
