1969: We remember Joe Namath and Super Bowl III
This is for those old enough who remember the Jets beating the Colts in Super Bowl III.
Jets 16, Colts 7 was the final score but it was not that close at all.
It was The Joe Namath show. He completed 17 of 28 passes, for a total of 206 yards. He got help from a couple of teammates: George Sauer caught eight of those for 133 yards, Don and Snell ran for a Super Bowl record 121 yards.
It was a great game to watch and a consequential victory. It put the AFL on the map and paved the way for the merger that created the AFC and NFC that we know today.
