Title Game Notes

January 19, 2020

Last year was the sixth time in 59 seasons with both AFL or AFC and NFL or NFC Title games that both road teams prevailed in those games.

The previous 5 times (1962 AFL and NFL, 1966 with the first Super Bowl bids on the line, 1992, 1997 and 2012), home teams came back the next year to go (9-1) as only the Falcons won a road game.

Home teams won both title tilts in 1963, 1967, 1993, and 2013.

 

The great Bart Starr, pictured above, threw 4 touchdown passes leading the Green Bay Packers to a (34-27) win at Dallas and a berth in the first Super Bowl after the 1966 season.
