How many Super Bowls have there been?
Super Bowl 44 was played in early 2010, Super Bowl 45 in 2011, Super Bowl 46 in 2012, etc. The first Super Bowl was in 1967 as a world championship game between the American Football League and the National Football League. This continued until 1971 with Super Bowl 5. This is the year the leagues merged under the name National Football League (NFL.) The MVP of this game was the Cowboys’ Chuck Howley. This was incredibly rare for two reasons: Howley was a defensive player and was on the losing team.
