Best Answer

- Depends on how specifically you want your question answered: - The NFL was started in 1920, but 1933 was the first year that the NFL played a championship game in which the Chicago Bears were victorious over the New York Giants. - However, the first SUPERBOWL championship was played in 1966 where the Green Bay Packers (NFL) beat the Kansas City Chiefs (of the AFL - American Football League). - The NFL and AFL merged in 1970 as one league with two conferences and the Baltimore Colts won that match against the Dallas Cowboys.
