Count Up to Super Bowl 50: A Look at Super Bowl II
June 14th, 2015 by John Nichols
Super Bowl I was such a success that Super Bowl II happened without a doubt. The 2nd ever AFL-NFL professional football championship game happened on January 14, 1968 in Miami, Florida. Many people who attended this game had the impression that any NFL team that played had much more talent than any AFL team.
The two teams playing during Super Bowl II were the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders. The stadium that was graced by the presence of these two teams was the Miami Orange Bowl Stadium. There was a total of 74, 546 people that attended Super Bowl II that day! Vince Lombardi was the head coach of the Packers at the time, who become a Future Hall of Famer.
Press and fans expected the Green Bay Packers to dominate the game and they did. In fact, the Raiders were only able to score two touchdown passes during the entire game. Don Chandler, the Packers Kicker, was able to make four field goals and Herb Adderley had a 60 yard interception return, which resulted in a touchdown. Let’s not forget the impression Bart Starr made during the first Super Bowl because he did just as great during Super Bowl II. Bart Starr was also made MVP of this Super Bowl. The final score of the game was the Green Bay Packers against the Oakland Raiders 33-14.
