Super Bowl II once again featured Vince Lombardi's Packers (9-4-1), but this time they faced off against the Super Bowl that Lombardi would resign as coach and general manager of the Packers after the championship contest.

The game was played in Miami's Orange Bowl before a sellout crowd of 75,546, and the Packers jumped out to an early 13-0 lead behind two Don Chandler field goals and a 62-yard pass from Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler.

But the Raiders came right back with a nine-play, 79-yard drive that included a 23-yard pass from Daryle Lamonica to wide receiver Bill Miller. The Raiders defense held the Packers on the next drive, but Roger Bird fumbled the fair catch on the receiving end, setting up another Chandler field goal, giving the Packers a 16-7 advantage at half time.

The Packers took control of the game in the third quarter, scoring a touchdown and a field goal to open up a 23-7 advantage. Cornerback Herb Adderly sealed the victory in the fourth quarter by intercepting a Lomonica pass and returning it 60 yards for a touchdown. Chandler connected on one more field goal to give the Packers their second-consecutive Super Bowl Championship, 33-14.
