The Super Bowl is the championship game of the NFL, played early in the year as the culmination of the playoffs. The location of the Super Bowl rotates each year with New Orleans and Miami having hosted the most big games in history. The Super Bowl is held two weeks after the AFC & NFC Championship Games are decided, although it used to be held the following weekend.
The first Super Bowl was played on January 15th, 1967 as the game to determine the Champion between the AFL and NFL. The Green Bay Packers won, and Bart Starr was named MVP of Super Bowl I. A condition of the AFL-NFL Merger was that the winners of each leagues championship game would meet to determine the world champion of American football. After the NFL's Green Bay Packers convincingly won the first two Super Bowls, some team owners feared that AFL teams could compete with their NFL counterparts. That all changed with perhaps the biggest upset in Super Bowl history, the AFL's New York Jets, led by Joe Namath, beat the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III in Miami. The next year, the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs defeated the NFL's Minnesota Vikings 23-7 and won Super Bowl IV in New Orleans. Check out these pages to see more famous Super Bowls and past SB champions.
Since the leagues merged into one in 1970, the Super Bowl has featured the champions of the AFC and NFC. The team who wins the Super Bowl receives the Vince Lombardi Trophy, named for the coach of the Green Bay Packers, who won the first two Super Bowl games.

2016 Super Bowl Preview
Super Bowl 49 (XLIX) will kickoff at 4:30PM MST on Sunday, February 1 in Glendale, Arizona at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Super Bowl XLIX will feature one of the best quarterback duels of this decade. Tom Brady will make history with a 6th appearance in the Super Bowl and will lead a relentless Patriots offensive attack against the Legion of Boom and the vaunted Seattle Seahawks defense. An improbable come from behind win in the NFC Championship Game has Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks returning to defend their 2014 Super Bowl Championship. Will the New England Patriots win a 4th Super Bowl title of the Brady – Belichick era? Or will Pete Carroll lead the Seattle Seahawks to back to back Super Bowl Championships? Either way, Super Bowl XLIX is likely to go down as one of the best Super Bowls yet.
