The Lions struck first, with a Doak Walker's 36-yard field goal. Six plays after the next kickoff, the Browns took the lead on Graham's 36-yard scoring pass to Ray Renfro, never relinquishing the lead as the Lions' run game was stopped effectively by the Browns' defense, intercepting Layne (who went 18 for 42, passing for 177 yards) six times, with Len Ford and Kenny Konz pulling in two each. The Browns also recovered three Detroit fumbles, twice leading to scores. Tom Dublinski was inserted asquartback after Cleveland took a 49-10 lead.

2 – Dates in the list denote the season, not the calendar year in which the championship game was played. For instance, Super Bowl XLI was played in 2007, but was the championship for the 2006 season.
