Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers Defeats Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl I.  Bart Starr named MVP.

The Green Bay Packers opened the first ever Super Bowl by defeating the AFL champion Kansas City Chiefs behind the passing of Quarterback Bart Starr, the receiving of seldom used receiver Max McGee, and a key interception by all-pro safety Willie Wood.

Kansas City made it close in the second when Mercer kicked a 31 yard field goal to get the Chiefs within 4 points but the Packers showed once again why they are considered to be one of the best teams in NFL history. Green Bay demonstrated amazing resilience as they broke open the game with three second half touchdowns, the first of which was set up by Wood's 50-yard return of an interception.

McGee, filling in for ailing Boyd Dowler after having caught only four passes all season, caught seven from Starr for 138 yards and two touchdowns. Elijah Pitts ran for 45 yards and the two other scores

The Chiefs' 10 points were scored in the second quarter and their only touchdown on a 7 yard touchdown pass from Len Dawson to Curtis McClinton. Bart Starr completed 16 of 23 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns and was chosen the most valuable player (MVP).

The Packers collected $15,000 per man and the Chiefs $7,500-the largest single-game shares in the history of team sports.
