MLB held on for a few years in the 1970s. The 1975 World Series (Boston and Cincinnati) was enormously compelling, and the resurgence of the Yankees in the late-1970s helped as well. The choking NFL defenses of 1974-77 also artificially hindered that league as well.
But for the most part, the NFL had overtaken MLB by 1970.
