After winning a record third consecutive NFL championship, Green Bay captured its second straight Super Bowl in a game that drew the first $3 million gate in football history. Bart Starr was again chosen the game’s most valuable player as he completed 13 of 24 passes for 202 yards.

The Packers were coming off the Ice Bowl victory over Dallas to win the NFL title.

Starr’s 62-yard pass to a wide-open Boyd Dowler gave the Packers a 13-0 second-quarter lead. Don Chandler kicked four field goals and Herb Adderley capped the Green Bay scoring with a 60-yard interception return. The Raiders’ two touchdowns came on a pair of 23-yard passes from Daryle Lamonica to Bill Miller.

The game marked the last for Vince Lombardi as Packers coach, ending nine years at Green Bay in which he won six Western Conference crowns, five NFL championships and two Super Bowls.
