playoff bowl..... (answered)

Postby Plindsey88 » Wed Sep 28, 2005 9:15 am

From 1960 to 1969, a game called the Bert Bell Benefit Bowl, also known as the Playoff Bowl, was played in the NFL.... The game matched up the runners-up of the Eastern and Western Divisions of the NFL during the off-week before the NFL Championship game....

The question is: which two teams played in the first Playoff Bowl, who won, and where was the game played?
