This Day in History - Super Bowl II

On January 14, 1968, the Green Bay Packers beat the AFL champion Oakland Raiders in front of approximately 75,546 fans in the Orange Bowl. The Packers won their second straight Super Bowl behind an MVP performance by quarterback Bart Starr, who completed 13-of-24 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown, a 62-yard strike to Boyd Dowler to give the Packers a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter. Don Chandler kicked four field goals (39, 20, 43 and 31 yards) and cornerback Herb Adderley returned a Daryle Lamonica interception 60 yards for a touchdown for Green Bay's final score in the 33-14 victory. The game marked Vince Lomabardi’s final game as coach of the Packers after nine years and five NFL titles.
