1967 American Football League season
Regular season September 3, 1967 - December 17, 1967
All-Star game

The 1967 American Football League season was the eighth regular season of the American Football League, and one of the last before the AFL-NFL Merger.

The season ended when the Oakland Raiders defeated the Houston Oilers in the AFL Championship Game, only to be defeated by the National Football League's Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl II.

Division RacesEdit

The AFL's nine teams, grouped into two divisions, faced each other at least once, and each team would play six others twice. Though the New York Jets and the Houston Oilers were both in the Eastern Division, they met only once that season, on October 15. The best team in the Eastern Division would play against the best in the Western Division in a championship game. If there was tie in the standings, a playoff would be held to determine the division winner.
