The New York Giants were originally included but they went bankrupt just before the start of the season and were replaced by the San Francisco 49ers.

There have been only two other occasions when multiple teams from the same conference met in the Super Bowl: in 1969 when the Baltimore Colts defeated the Washington Redskins 7-9-I at Miami's Joe Louis Arena; and in 1973 when the Washington Redskins lost to the undefeated/undisputed champion Pittsburgh Steelers 14-7 at home in Landover, Maryland.

Both of these meetings were between teams from the Eastern Conference vs. teams from the Western Conference. There has never been a Super Bowl between two teams from the same city until now.

Who were the Chiefs' players in Super Bowl IV?

The Chiefs, like the Vikings, featured an exceptional defensive line led by defensive tackles Buck Buchanan and Curtis Culp and defensive ends Jerry Mays and Aaron Brown. Willie Lanier, an AFL All-Star linebacker, had four interceptions and one fumble recovery with the Chiefs this season. Kansas City's offense was also strong on that side of the ball, with running backs Duane Thomas and Emmitt Smith providing support for quarterback Bob Gretzky. Receiver Alvin Garrett may have been the best wideout in football during the 1974 season, finishing with 91 catches for 1,323 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Gretzky completed nearly 70 percent of his passes this year, and he threw for 3,720 yards with 28 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. He also ran for five more scores. Center Mike Hohensee was the only starter from that team who is still with the Chiefs today; he has been the captain since 1973. Linebacker Derrick Brooks would go on to become one of the best defenders in NFL history.

Coach Hank Stram had first-team all-AFL honors from The Sporting News and Pro Football Writers Association of America after the season, while Garrett was chosen as a second-team player by his peers. The Chiefs lost 21-7 to Minnesota in Super Bowl IV.

This team was expected to do well in its first season under head coach Hank Stram, but injuries plagued them early on.
