New York Jets, Super Bowl III
The Baltimore Colts were the overwhelming favorite for Super Bowl III in 1969, but Jets quarterback Joe Namath had a different opinion. Going into the game, Namath announced that his team would win the matchup. Nobody believed him. The Jets were from the inferior AFL. The Colts were from the big, bad NFL. Namath made good on his promise as the Jets took the game, 16-7, and expedited the AFL/NFL merger. (AP Photo)
