NFL Network To Re-Air Super Bowl I for the First Time Ever (11 Photos)

NFL Films has stitched together an important piece of Super Bowl history.

In what was described as an “exhaustive process,” NFL Films has pieced together all the plays of Super Bowl I, and will air the footage this weekend on NFL Network.

The game, featuring Green Bay vs. Kansas City, will air on Jan. 15, the 49th anniversary of the game.

Super Bowl I was the only Super Bowl to be broadcast on two networks, NBC and CBS, which were the broadcasters of the AFL and NFL.

The tapes from the first Super Bowl were either lost or recorded over, and no full game coverage has existed until now.

The coverage will feature commentary from Steve Mariucci, Willie Davis, Antonio Freeman, Jerry Kramer and Dave Robinson.

The three-hour program will begin at 7 p.m. (CST) Friday on the NFL Network.
