4. Super Bowl II, 1969: Green Bay 33 – Oakland 14
The second AFL-NFL Championship game, now referred to as Super Bowl II, was much like the first. Representing the preeminent NFL, Vince Lombardi’s Packers demolished the Oakland Raiders 33-14 behind quarterback Bart Starr, an efficient running attack and a formidable defense. The first two Super Bowls set a trend for bad games and mismatches that would plague the game in perpetuity.
