January 14, 1968

In Vince Lombardi’s final game as coach of the Packers, Green Bay wins Super Bowl II over the Oakland Raiders, 33-14, at the Orange Bowl for the franchise’s fifth world title in a span of seven years and 11th overall.

Game MVP Bart Starr threw a 62-yard TD pass to Boyd Dowler early in the second quarter to stretch Green Bay’s early lead to 13-0, and cornerback Herb Adderley’s 60-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter turned the game into a runaway. Kicker Don Chandler was a perfect 4-for-4 on field goals.

Lombardi was carried off the field by his players, and then two weeks later, he resigned as head coach, saying he’d remain as the team’s general manager. The following year, he resigned as GM so he could become coach, executive vice president and part owner of the Washington Redskins.
