Super Bowl I MVP: Bart Starr wire reports

Bart Starr

Quarterback Bart Starr was the first Most Valuable Player in the first Super Bowl, a game officially known at the AFL-NFL World Championship. The game would not be known as the Super Bowl until the fourth playing.

In leading the Packers to a 35-10 victory over Kansas City and Green Bay's second consecutive NFL championship (it won the NFL title in 1965), Starr completed 16 of 23 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns.

His main target in Super Bowl I was reserve wide receiver Max McGee, who caught 7 passes for 138 yards. McGee and Starr hooked up in the first quarter for a 37-yard score, and again at the end of the third quarter for a 13-yard touchdown.
