As we count down to Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, it’s time to look back on the magical and memorable moments in the 49 previous Super Bowls. FOX Sports senior NFL writer Alex Marvez has ranked the 50 greatest moments in the big game’s big history, and every weekday from now until Feb. 7 we’ll unveil the latest addition to our countdown. Today, we look back at moment No. 30, when Hank Stram’s Chiefs followed up the Jets’ Super stunner by the AFL the year before with a domination of their own.

For the first time in Super Bowl history, a head coach was wired for sound — and it wasn’t Minnesota’s stone-faced Bud Grant.

Kansas City’s gabby Hank Stram provided an entertaining soundtrack for a popular special later released by NFL Films.

Some of Stram’s best banter came after he called "65 Toss Power Trap" against Minnesota’s vaunted "Purple People Eaters" defense.


The play produced a 5-yard Mike Garrett touchdown run, giving Kansas City a 16-0 second-quarter lead.

A smiling Stram celebrated by yelling to his offensive players while coming off the field and proclaiming, "I tell ya that thing was there!"

Here are highlights from Super Bowl IV.

Final score: Kansas City 23, Minnesota 7
