Every time NFL games were relocated in the Super Bowl Era

Boston Patriots (Weeks 6 & 7, 1967)

As readers will find out in this list, Major League Baseball may be the biggest factor besides weather as to why games were relocated. Back when American Football League (AFL) and NFL teams were still getting their footing for their own stadiums, they had to rely on other sports venues to serve as their home. Due to this, conflicts with MLB playoff games were rampant during the early years of the merger including in 1967 when the Patriots had to play back-to-back weeks away from Fenway Park.

With the Boston Red Sox making the 1967 World Series, Fenway was occupied forcing the Patriots away from the stadium for their Week 6 matchup against the San Diego Chargers. It was decided that the teams would instead play in San Diego where they tied 31-31.

The very next week, the Patriots were set to come back to Fenway, but the field couldn’t be converted back in time so they had to find refuge at Boston College’s Alumni Stadium where they beat the visiting Miami Dolphins 41-10.
