From Academic Kids

Template:Infobox SuperBowl

Super Bowl II was the second Super Bowl, the championship of American football. The game was played on January 14, 1968 at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida.

The final result was the Green Bay Packers 33, the Oakland Raiders 14.

The game was broadcast on CBS in the United States with Ray Scott, Jack Kemp and Pat Summerall.

Prior to the game, there were rumors that following the game, Packers coach and general manager Vince Lombardi would resign from the Green Bay organization. The rumors would prove prescient as the game would be Lombardi's last with the Packers. The game would also prove to be the final one for Packers wide receiver Max McGee, one of the heroes of Super Bowl I, and place kicker Don Chandler.

Playoffs

The 1967 NFL Championship, which was played on December 31, 1967 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, occurred on the coldest New Year's Eve in Green Bay's recorded history. In -13° F weather with a -40° F wind chill, Vince Lombardi's Packers got out to an early 14-0 lead over Tom Landry's Dallas Cowboys. However, the Cowboys battled back by halftime, 14-10. The game became known as the "Ice Bowl" to Packers fandom.

In the fourth quarter, the Cowboys gained a late 17-14 lead on halfback Dan Reeves' 50-yard throw to Lance Rentzel. The Packers, with 4:50 remaining in the game, put together a 12-play, 68-yard drive down to the two-foot line. Rather than kicking a field goal to tie, Lombardi, with 16 seconds remaining and no timeouts, opted to go for the touchdown. Quarterback Bart Starr pulled a quarterback sneak, scoring the winning touchdown and sending the Packers to the Super Bowl with a 21-17 victory. The game was later dubbed the "Ice Bowl."

On the AFL side, the 13-1 Oakland Raiders faced the 9-4-1 Houston Oilers for the AFL Championship for a place in Super Bowl II. At Oakland Coliseum, the Raiders were a heavy favorite, after having the best season in AFL history. The Raiders, led by quarterback/kicker George Blanda got out to a big lead in the second quarter and never looked back. By halftime, the score was 17-0 and at the end of the third quarter, the score was 27-0. The Oilers only managed one touchdown in the fourth quarter, losing the game to the Raiders, 40-7.

Coming into the Super Bowl, the Packers were 14-point favorites.

The game

Led by quarterback Bart Starr, the Packers got out to an early 13-0 lead. However, the Raiders, responded with a Daryle Lamonica touchdown drive halfway through the second quarter. By halftime, the Packers led the Raiders, 16-7. In the third quarter the Packers scored a touchdown and a field goal, and a fourth quarter interception return for a touchdown by Packers cornerback Herb Adderly secured the victory for the Packers.

At the end of the game, coach Lombardi was carried off the field by his victorious Packers in one of the more memorable images of early Super Bowl history. Bart Starr was named the Super Bowl MVP for the second time for his 13 of 24 passing for 202 yards and one touchdown.
