NFL Network Brings Back Super Bowl I Broadcast

The NFL Network on Jan. 15 plans to show the Green Bay Packers playing the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl I for the first time since 1967.

NBC and CBS were the original broadcasters of the game, and both networks had lost or recorded over tapes of the broadcast.

NFL Films spent months searching its archives, from more than a dozen sources, to find all 145 Super Bowl I plays and recreate the entire game.
