4. 1967: 13-1 (Lost in Super Bowl II to Green Bay Packers)
After stumbling around in the first few years of the AFL, the Oakland Raiders finally put it all together in 1967. It was the second year of the John Rauch era in Oakland and quarterback Daryle Lamonica was league MVP that season.
Oakland would go an impressive 13-1 and win the AFC West easily. Their only regular season loss came on the road in Week 4 against the New York Jets, 27-14. Oakland would go on to win its final 10 regular season games to cruise to the 1967 AFL Championship.
There they would meet the Houston Oilers and blow them out of the water. Oakland crushed Houston to the tune of 40-7 to win the 1967 AFL Championship. After that game, the Raiders would get the pleasure of playing in what is now known as Super Bowl II.
The Raiders would take on the defending Super Bowl Champions in the Green Bay Packers. In the inaugural Super Bowl, the Packers would handle the Raiders’ main rival in the Kansas City Chiefs. While it wouldn’t be much of a contest in Super Bowl II, this is one of the best seasons in Raiders franchise history for their utter dominance of the AFL that year.
