Super Bowl I, Jan. 15, 1967. Green Bay Packers 35, Kansas City Chiefs 10.
Line: Packers by 14. Halftime show: University of Arizona and University of Michigan bands
Max McGee might have started off life in football as a punter, but he’ll forever be remembered as the man who scored the first-ever touchdown in a Super Bowl. His spectacular one-handed grab of a 37-yard pass from Green Bay quarterback Bart Starr gave the Packers the early lead in their eventual 35-10 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. McGee had caught only four passes all season but snared seven for 138 yards and two TDs in the Super Bowl. Funnily enough, because McGee didn’t expect to start the game, he violated the team’s curfew policy and spent the previous night out on the town. The next morning, he told starting receiver Boyd Dowler, “I hope you don’t get hurt. I’m not in very good shape,” which pretty much screamed hangover to anyone paying attention. Dowler went down with a separated shoulder on the Packers’ second drive, and McGee, who then had to borrow a teammate’s helmet because he hadn’t brought his own from the locker room, was put in the game. A few plays later, history was made.
