Super Bowl I|Super Bowl III

January 14, 1968

Green Bay made its second consecutive appearance representing the NFL facing the Oakland Raiders this time.

And again, the old guard won, and more handily than in the first Super Bowl, taking the lead in the first quarter with a 39-yard field goal by kicker Don Chandler (who kicked a total of 4 FG's for his team during the game). The Packers never lost the lead, with Oakland's only TD's coming in the 2nd and 4th quarters.

Attendance for the game was 75,546. Bart Starr was once again named the MVP for the game, with Vince Lombardi as his head coach (in fact, the trophy awarded to the winner of the Super Bowl later became known as The Vince Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy whotta mouthful). John Rauch coached the Raiders.

This game was the first to break the 3 million dollar mark in gate receipts.
