Max McGee caught the first touchdown pass in Super Bowl I (technically the first AFL-NFL World Championship) on January 15, 1967, as the Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10. He caught 2 touchdowns in that game and a reception that set up a touchdown in Super Bowl II the following year, which marked his final season in the NFL.
