Super Bowl IV: Kansas City 23-7 Minnesota

11 Jan, 1970

The AFL ties the Super Bowl at two games apiece with the NFL with Kansas, building a 16-0 halftime lead. Dawson, the fourth consecutive quarterback to be chosen the Super Bowl’s top player, plays an almost flawless game, completing 12 of 17 passes and hitting Otis Taylor on a 46-yard play for the final Chiefs touchdown. The Kansas City defense limits Minnesota’s strong rushing game to 67 yards and has three interceptions and two fumble recoveries. The crowd of 80,562 sets a Super Bowl record, as do the gross receipts of $3,817,872.69.
