RONALD GIBBS

Game 145 | September 19, 1966 | Ronald Gibbs
In 1966 Gibbs was the supervisor of officials in the National Football League. He talked to Dunkers about rule changes and his recollections of the 1958 NFL championship game in which he was the lead official. That game, won in overtime 23-17 by the Baltimore Colts over the New York Giants, is often referred to as "the greatest game ever played." The overtime was the first in NFL history, and the game was the first televised live from coast to coast.
