Kansas City Royals outfielder Bo Jackson makes his NFL debut with the L.A. Raiders. Jackson, who has said pro football will be a "hobby," runs eight times for 37 yards in a 26-23 loss to the Patriots in Foxboro, Mass.
After striking out in his first six at-bats against Nolan Ryan, Bo Jackson crushes a 461-foot homer, one of the longest in the history of Arlington Stadium, off Ryan. The Rangers win, 10-8.
Bo Jackson rushes for a Raiders' record 221 yards, including a 91-yard touchdown burst that takes him into a Kingdome tunnel, in Oakland's 37-14 win over the Seattle Seahawks.
