1969 NFL Super Bowl III (Super Bowl 3) DVD
recap / box score

Jets quarterback Joe Namath "guaranteed" victory on the Thursday before the game, then went out and led the AFL to its first Super Bowl victory over a Baltimore team that had lost only once in 16 games all season.

Joe Namath, chosen the outstanding player, completed 17 of 28 passes for 206 yards and directed a steady attack that dominated the NFL champions after the Jets' defense had intercepted Colts quarterback Earl Morrall three times in the first half.

The Jets had 337 total yards, including 121 rushing yards by Matt Snell.

Johnny Unitas, who had missed most of the season with a sore elbow, came off the bench and led Baltimore to its only touchdown late in the fourth quarter after New York led 16-0.

Quarterback Joe Namath might have won the Most Valuable Player award without even throwing a pass. His "guarantee" of victory and his determined leadership to back up his boast cemented the reputation of the AFL and excited football fans around the country. The upstart Jets defeated the Baltimore Colts of the NFL 16-7 in one of the biggest upsets in sports history.

Completing 17-of-28 passes for 206 yards, Joe Namath directed a Jets attack that rolled up 337 yards of total offense. The Jets defense did its part by forcing 5 turnovers.

Joe Namath's famous run off the field after the game, his index finger waving to let the world know who was "No. 1," is one of the enduring images of the Super Bowl.
