Super Bowl I set to re-air for the first time in almost 50 years

Lost Footage of the First Super Bowl Resurrected and Being Broadcast

Complete video footage of the first Super Bowl game in 1967 has been nearly impossible to find for decades. Until now.

NFL Films has gone to great extents to bring the game back to life, after tapes of the original airing were erased. Following an "exhaustive" process that's taken place over the last several months, video of the game has finally been pieced together.

From dozens of different sources, the league was able to locate footage from all 145 plays of Super Bowl I, then stitch them together while remastering and color correcting the footage.

Now, first the first time since the live airing on CBS and NBC nearly a half-century ago, football fans can watch the historic game in its entirety. "Super Bowl I: The Lost Game" will air on Jan. 15 on NFL Network -- the 49th anniversary of the annual game's inception.
