Packer Super Bowl Game Summaries

What discussion of all time great franchises is complete without the Packers?  Green Bay has been to five Super Bowl games, winning four.  Two in the Lombardi era, one  win and one loss in the Mike Holmgren-Ron Wolfe-Brett Favre-Reggie White days and victory in Super Bowl XLV with Ted Thompson, Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers leading the way.  Here's a look at Packer Super Bowl games dating back to the first one.

SUPER BOWL I
Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles
January 15, 1967—Attendance: 61,946

GREEN BAY 35, KANSAS CITY 10- The Green Bay Packers took the first AFL-NFL World Championship (as it was simply called then) by defeating Kansas City’s AFL champions 35-10 behind the passing of Bart Starr, the receiving of Max McGee, and a key interception by all-pro safety Willie Wood. Green Bay broke open the game with 3 second-half touchdowns, the first of which was set up by Wood’s 50-yard return of an interception to the Chiefs’ 5-yard line. McGee, who caught only 4 passes all season, caught 7 from Starr for 138 yards and 2 touchdowns. Elijah Pitts ran for 2 other scores. The Chiefs’ 10 points came in the second quarter, the only touchdown on a 7-yard pass from Len Dawson to Curtis McClinton. Starr completed 16 of 23 passes for 250 yards and 2 touchdowns and was chosen the most valuable player. The Packers collected $15,000 per man and the Chiefs $7,500—the largest single-game shares in the history of team sports.

SUPER BOWL II
Orange Bowl, South Florida
January 14, 1968—Attendance: 75,546

GREEN BAY 33, OAKLAND 14—After winning its third consecutive NFL championship, the Packer Super Bowl record went to 2-0 after a 33-14 over the AFL champion Raiders in a game that drew the first $3-million gate in football history. Bart Starr again was chosen the game’s most valuable player as he completed
13 of 24 passes for 202 yards and 1 touchdown and directed a Packers attack that was in control all the way after building a 16-7 halftime lead. Don Chandler kicked 4 field goals and all-pro cornerback Herb Adderley capped the Green Bay scoring with a 60-yard run with an interception. The game marked the last for Vince Lombardi as Packers coach, ending nine years in which he won six Western Conference championships, five NFL championships, and two Super Bowls.

SUPER BOWL XXXI
Louisiana Superdome, New Orleans
January 26, 1997—Attendance: 72,301

GREEN BAY 35, NEW ENGLAND 21—Desmond Howard returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, and Brett Favre threw 2 touchdown passes and ran for a score as the Packers won their first Super Bowl in twenty-nine years. Howard, en route to garnering the MVP trophy, established a Super Bowl record with 244 total return yards. It was Favre’s arm that struck first, as he hit Andre Rison for a 54-yard touchdown pass on the Packers’ second play from scrimmage to take a 7-0 lead. Two plays later Doug Evans made a diving interception of Drew Bledsoe’s pass at the 28-yard line, setting up Chris Jacke’s field goal and giving the Packers a 10-0 lead just 6:18 into the Super Bowl. The Patriots answered with touchdowns on their next two possessions.

Craig Newsome’s pass interference penalty set up the first touchdown and a 44-yard completion from Bledsoe to Terry Glenn preceding Ben Coates’ touchdown
gave New England its first and only lead. The 24 combined first-quarter points were the most in Super Bowl history. Green Bay struck again 56 seconds into the second quarter as Favre hit Antonio Freeman with a Super Bowl-record 81-yard touchdown bomb. Jacke booted his second field goal on Green Bay’s next possession.

After a Mike Prior interception, Favre orchestrated a 74-yard, nearly 6-minute drive, which concluded with a diving Favre touching the ball against the pylon  to give Green Bay a 27-14 halftime lead. Future Hall of Famer Curtis Martin brought the Patriots to within a score by running in from 18 yards out with 3:27 left in the third quarter. But Howard broke the Patriots’ spirit by returning the ensuing kickoff a Super Bowl-record 99 yards. Favre found  Mark Chmura for the 2-point conversion to finish the scoring. Bledsoe was intercepted twice in the fourth quarter as the Patriots never crossed midfield in 4 fourth-quarter possessions. Reggie White set a Super
Bowl record with 3 sacks. Favre completed 14 of 27 passes for 246 yards, 2 touchdowns, and had 1 rushing touchdown. Bledsoe completed 11 more passes than
Favre, but for just 7 more yards, and threw 4 interceptions.

SUPER BOWL XXXII
Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego
January 25, 1998—Attendance: 68,912

DENVER 31, GREEN BAY 24—Terrell Davis rushed for 157 yards and a Super Bowl-record 3 touchdowns to lead the Broncos to their first NFL championship and break the NFC’s streak of Super Bowl victories at thirteen.

The defending Super Bowl champion Packers took the opening kickoff and marched 76 yards in just over four minutes, scoring the first points on Brett Favre’s 22-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Freeman. The Broncos responded with a 10-play, 58-yard drive capped by Davis’ 1-yard run to tie the game. Tyrone Braxton intercepted Favre two plays later, and John Elway scored on a third-and-goal play to begin the second quarter. Steve Atwater forced Favre to fumble three plays later, and Neil Smith recovered at the Packers’ 33. Jason Elam converted a 51-yard field goal, the second longest in Super Bowl history, to give the Broncos a 17-7 lead with 12:21 left in the half.

After an exchange of punts, the Packers produced a 17-play, 95-yard drive that consumed 7:26 and finished with Favre’s 6-yard touchdown pass to Mark Chmura on third-and-5 with 12 seconds left in the half. Tyrone Williams forced and recovered Davis’ fumble at the Broncos’ 26 on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. However, the Broncos’ defense kept the Packers out of the end zone as Ryan Longwell’s 27-yard field goal tied the game with 11:59 left in the third quarter.

After another exchange of punts, Elway’s 36-yard pass to Ed McCaffrey keyed a 13-play, 92-yard drive capped by Davis’ 1-yard touchdown run with 34 seconds left in the third quarter.  Tim McKyer recovered Freeman’s fumble at the Packers’ 22 on the ensuing kickoff return, giving the Broncos a golden opportunity, but Eugene Robinson intercepted Elway’s pass in the end zone on the next play.  Sparked by Robinson’s play, the Packers took just four plays, three on passes to Freeman, to score the tying
touchdown with 13:32 remaining. Each defense stiffened, forcing two punts, but the Broncos got great field position following Craig Hentrich’s 39-yard punt to the
Packers’ 49 with 3:27 left and the score tied 24-24.  Davis rushed for 2 yards on the first play, but Darrius Holland’s 15-yard face mask penalty moved the ball to
the Packers’ 32. Elway threw a 23-yard pass to Howard Griffith two plays later, and Davis rushed 7 yards to the Packers’ 1 with 1:47 left. After a timeout, Davis waltzed
into the end zone to give Denver a 31-24 lead with 1:45 remaining. Freeman returned the kickoff 22 yards to the Broncos’ 30, and Favre dumped 22- and 13-yard passes
to Dorsey Levens to reach the Broncos’ 35 with 1:04 left. John Mobley batted down Favre’s pass to Chmura with 32 seconds left to give the Broncos the Vince Lombardi
Trophy.

Elway was 12 of 22 for 123 yards, with 1 interception. Favre was 25 of 42 for 256 yards and 1 touchdown, with 1 interception. Freeman had 9 receptions for 126 yards. Davis was named the game’s most valuable player.

SUPER BOWL XLV
Cowboys Stadium, North Texas
February 6, 2011, Attendance: 91,060

GREEN BAY 31, PITTSBURGH 25—Aaron Rodgers passed for 304 yards and three touchdowns, and two interceptions by the Packers’ defense resulted in 14
points, as Green Bay won its fourth Super Bowl title.

Faced with third-and-one in the middle of the first quarter, Rodgers completed a 29-yard touchdown pass down the r ight sidel ine to Jordy Nelson for a 7-0 lead. On the next play from scrimmage, Nick Collins intercepted a pass intended for Mike Wallace and returned it 37 yards for a touchdown. The Packers scored third-and-9 by Ben Roethlisberger followed three plays later by a 13-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders on third-and-13, that led to Shaun Suisham’s 33-yard field goal.

Later in the second quarter, Jarrett Bush intercepted a pass near midfield. A 16-yard pass to Nelson and 12-yard run by James Starks led to Rodgers’ 21-yard touchdown
pass to Greg Jennings for a 21-3 Packers’ lead with 2:24 to play in the half. Roethlisberger’s 14-yard pass to Hines Ward on third-and-10 kept alive the next drive,
and a few plays later Ward caught an 8-yard touchdown pass on first-and-goal with 39 seconds left in the half to trim the deficit to 21-10.

The Steelers’ defense forced a punt on Green Bay’s first drive of the second half, and the offense needed just five plays to cover 50 yards, keyed by a 17-yard run by Rashard Mendenhall and 16-yard run by Isaac Redman, and capped by Mendenhall’s 8-yard touchdown run. Down four points, the Steelers’ defense forced a three-and-out and drove to the Packers’ 29. But a three-yard tackle-for-loss by Desmond Bishop and a 2-yard sack by Frank Zombo pushed Pittsburgh back to the 34-yard-line and Suisham’s 52-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide left.

After a flurry of punts, the Steelers regained possession, but on the first play of the fourth quarter, Clay Matthews forced Mendenhall to fumble and Bishop recovered
at the Packers’ 45. Rodgers then completed a 12-yard pass to James Jones on third-and-7 to keep alive the drive. Three plays later, faced with third-and-10, Rodgers found Nelson short over the middle. Nelson sliced through the defense for 38 yards. Jennings’ 8-yard touchdown catch two plays later stretched the Packers’ lead to 28-17 with 11:57 to play.

The Steelers drove to the Packers’ 25. Faced with third-and-3, Roethlisberger completed a pass to Wallace deep down the left side for a 25-yard touchdown. With 7:34 to play and down 28-23, Mike Tomlin chose to go for the 2-point conversion, and it worked as Antwaan Randle El took an option pitch from Roethlisberger and cut the deficit to 28-25. The Packers immediately were faced with a third-and-10 and looked as if they would have to give the ball back to Pittsburgh. But Rodgers completed a
31-yard pass to Jennings deep down the middle. A 14-yard run by Starks and 21-yard pass to Jones set up Mason Crosby’s 23-yard field goal with 2:07 remaining
for a 31-25 lead.

The Steelers reached their own 33-yard line with 1:08 to play, but Roethlisberger’s final three pass attempts fell incomplete and the Packers clinched their first Super Bowl title in 14 years. Rodgers was 24 of 39 for 304 yards and 3 touchdowns and was named Super Bowl MVP. His main target was Nelson, who had 9 receptions for 140 yards. Defensively, Charlie Peprah had 10 tackles and Bishop registered three tackles for losses. Roethlisberger completed 25 of 40 passes for 263 yards and 2 touchdowns, with 2 interceptions.   However, the Packer Super Bowl win total had reached four and the Lombardi trophy was once again coming back to Green Bay.
