Which team, led by Joe Namath, won Super Bowl III in 1969?



New York Jets





Answer: Three days before Super Bowl III, “Broadway Joe” Namath told reporters that he guaranteed a Jets victory over the heavily-favored Colts.





Namath and the Jets followed through on the guarantee, defeating the Colts 16-7. Namath, who completed 17 out of 28 passes for 206 yards, was named as the Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player, despite not throwing a touchdown pass in the game or any passes at all in the fourth quarter. The Jets are the only Super Bowl team to score only one touchdown and still win.
