Max McGee's One-Handed TD Catch in SB I
Near the end of his 12-year career, Packers receiver Max McGee scored the first touchdown in Super Bowl history. Super Bowl I between the Chiefs and Packers, which was played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Jan. 15, 1967, wasn’t much of a competition: Green Bay won 35-10. But McGee’s reception in the first quarter surely remains, over 50 years later, one of the niftiest catches in Super Bowl lore. With the ball in Chiefs’ territory, Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr dropped back and threw a pass to McGee, who was running across the middle. The ball was behind McGee, who lunged back with his right hand just before the defender could snatch the ball away. The ball stuck in McGee's hand and he secured it against his body while he was still running. From there he waltzed into the end zone for a 37-yard touchdown. For the 34-year-old McGee, it was only his fifth catch all season. In the third quarter, McGee caught another touchdown from Starr – he finished the game with seven catches and 138 yards receiving – and the Packers won the first-ever Super Bowl, 35-10.
