Baltimore Colts Defeats Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl V.  Chuck Howley named MVP.

The first Super Bowl under the new merger of the NFL and AFL ended in high drama but only after both teams suffered through 60 minutes of turnovers. The Colts fumbled five times (losing three) and suffered three interceptions. The Cowboys lost one fumble and also threw three interceptions.

A 32-yard field goal by rookie kicker Jim O'Brien brought the Baltimore Colts a victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the final five seconds of Super Bowl V.

The game between the champions of the Colts AFC and Cowboys NFC was played on artificial turf for the first time in Super Bowl history.

Dallas led 13 - 6 at the half and looked ready to take home the championship but interceptions by Rick Volk and Mike Curtis set up a Baltimore touchdown and O'Brien's decisive kick in the fourth period.

Earl Morrall relieved an injured Johnny Unitas late in the first half, although Unitas completed the Colts' only scoring pass. It caromed off receiver Eddie Hinton's fingertips, off Dallas defensive back Mel Renfro, and finally settled into the grasp of John Mackey, who went 45 yards to score on a 75-yard play.

Dallas' Chuck Howley had a remarkable game, he picked off two passes, became the first defensive player awarded the MVP and the first player from a losing team to be named MVP.
