1969: We remember Joe Namath and Super Bowl III

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


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.
