Plot Synopsis

As part of a merger agreement between the National Football League (NFL) and the American Football League (AFL), the first Super Bowl was played on January 15, 1967. The first three years pitted League Champions against each other. Since the merger, the Super Bowl has been played every year since 1970 between the AFC and NFC Conference Champions. The winning team earns a trophy, named the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1970 after the former Green Bay Packer head coach died. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the winningest Super Bowl team, having won six trophies, while the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have each won five.
