The 1970 Pro Bowl was the NFL's twentieth annual all-star game which featured the outstanding performers from the 1969 season. The game was played on Sunday, January 18, 1970, at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. The final score was West 16, East 13. Gayle Sayers of the Chicago Bears was named the game's offensive Most Valuable Player (MVP) after rushing for 75 yards on 9 carries. George Andrie of the Dallas Cowboys was selected as the defensive MVP.[1]

Attendance at the game was 57,786. Norm Van Brocklin of the Atlanta Falcons coached the West squad while the East was led by the New Orleans Saints' Tom Fears.[2] This was the last Pro Bowl to feature the Eastern Conference vs. Western Conference format. After the AFL-NFL merger was completed, future Pro Bowls would pit the AFC against the NFC.
