Lombardi Meets the Press

Green Bay head coach Vince Lombardi meets with the assembled media following a 1966 game in today’s photo. The 1966 Packers’ season was their 46th in the NFL and it resulted in a 12-2 record. They beat the Dallas Cowboys in the 1966 NFL Championship Game, the Packers' 10th NFL title. They then recorded a 35-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in the inaugural AFL-NFL Championship Game (the first “Super Bowl”). In 2007, the 1966 Packers were ranked as the sixth greatest Super Bowl champions on the NFL Network's documentary series America's Game: The Super Bowl Champions.
