The front of the Olympic Stadium

The 1967 East-West Pro Bowl was played on January 22, 1967 in a heavy rainstorm at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California before a sparse crowd of 15,062. This was the second lowest attendance in the history of the Pro Bowl next to the inaugural game in 1939. The game proved that the NFL had a successor to the great Jim Brown, who had retired after the 1965 season, with the presence of the Chicago Bears Gayle Sayers. The coaches for the game were Tom Landry of the Dallas Cowboys for the East and George Allen of the Los Angeles Rams for the West. Gale Sayers of the Chicago Bears was awarded back of the game, Floyd Peters of the Philadelphia Eagles was awarded lineman of the game. The final score was East 20 West 10. For the second year in a row, the East had dominated the West on the strength of turnovers. They recovered two fumbles and intercepted four passes.[1]
