AFL founder and Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt coined the phrase “Super Bowl”. Hunt thought of the name after seeing his kids playing with a toy called a Super Ball. The first Super Bowl was played on January 15, 1967. The Green Bay Packers won the first two Super Bowls, defeating the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders.Added By: Chili Master
