The First AFL-World Championship Game in professional American football, later known as Super Bowl I and referred to in some contemporary reports as the Supergame, was played on January 15, 1967 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. The National Football League champion Green Bay Packers defeated the American Football League (AFL) champion Kansas City Chiefs by the score of 35�10.
Coming into this game, considerable animosity remained between the AFL and , thus the teams representing the two rival leagues (Kansas City and Green Bay, respectively) felt pressure to win. The Chiefs posted an 11-2-1 record during the 1966 AFL season, and defeated the Buffalo Bills, 31-7, in 1966 AFL Championship Game. The Packers finished the 1966 season at 12-2, and defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 34-27, in the 1966 Championship Game. Still, many sports writers and fans believed any team in the older was vastly superior to any club in the upstart AFL, so expected Green Bay would blow out Kansas City.
