Joe Kapp wikipedia

.... In 1968, Kapp led Minnesota to their
first ever playoff appearance, losing to
the favored Baltimore Colts, 24–14. The
Colts were upset a few weeks later by the
New York Jets in Super Bowl III.

Early in the 1969 season, Kapp tied an all-
time record when he threw for 7 touchdown
passes against the defending NFL cham-
pion Colts on September 28. He is tied with
7 other players (Sid Luckman, Adrian Burk,
George Blanda, Y. A. Tittle, Nick Foles, Pey-
ton Manning, & Drew Brees).

Kapp led the Vikings to a 12–2 record, & a
berth in Super Bowl IV after defeating the
Los Angeles Rams 23–20 in the Western
Conference championship game, & the
Cleveland Browns 27–7 in the last non-
Super Bowl NFL Championship game.

However, he was unable to lead the team
to victory in the Super Bowl, as the Vik-
ings lost 23–7 to the Kansas City Chiefs
in Super Bowl IV.
