Countdown to 2020 Super Bowl LIV Miami: Super Bowl I

Just a matter of weeks from kicking off the 2019 NFL preseason, the road to Super Bowl LIV in Miami is growing closer. A quick look back at the game that started it all, Super Bowl I.

NFL vs. AFL: Part Two

Held at Miami’s Orange Bowl Stadium on January 14, 1968, the Green Bay Packers would make their second-straight Super Bowl appearance in front of more than 74,000 fans. Super Bowl II, or the second NFL-AFL Championship game, would be yet another victory for the NFL, providing fans with belief that the NFL was much more talented than their AFL counterparts.

After defeating the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl I, the Packers would take on the vaunted Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl II. Reporters and fans alike expected the Packers to dominate the game, and that they did. In fact, the Oakland Raiders were only able to score twice in the entirety of the game. Don Chandler, the Packers kicker, was able to make four field goals and defensive back Herb Adderley added a 60-yard interception return for a touchdown en route to the Packers’ second straight championship, a 33-41 victory over Oakland.

Not to be forgotten was Packers quarterback Bart Starr, who not only was the first two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback, but was the first two-time Super Bowl MVP as well. Just two Super Bowls played, two championships and two Super Bowl MVP awards would help to cement Starr’s status as one of the all-time greats.
