Super bowl 1 in the 60s
The 60s topic I researched was the first super bowl ever played. The game was won by the Green Bay packers against the Kansas City chiefs. The Green Bay packers had a record of 12-2. That means the Green Bay won twelve out of the fourteen games they played. The Green Bay packers also lost two of the fourteen games they played. The Kansas city chiefs finished their season with a record of 11-2-1. That means Kansas city won eleven out of the fourteen games they played. They tied one game and lost two games they played. Green bay kept it constant with scoring at least seven points each quarter they played and kept Kansas city at ten from the second to the end of the game. The first two quarters were very competitive between green bay and Kansas city. By the first half was over green bay had fourteen points and Kansas city had ten. By the end of the game green bay beat Kansas city by 35-10.
Bart Starr, the quarter back for the packers, is yelling the numbers to start off the game. He is ready to win his first MVP at a super bowl.
William max McGee, the wide receiver for the packers, is catching the first touchdown for his team in his first super bowl. McGee is doing a little jig as he catches the ball.
Running the ball
Jim Taylor, a full back for the packers, is running his butt off to not get tackled by a huge defensive lineman to score points for his team.
