Joe Namath (III)

17-28, 206 yds, 7.4 YPA, 0 TD, 0 INT, 83.3 pr

Broadway Joe had the cojones to declare that his AFL Jets were going to beat one of the most dominant teams in NFL history, Don Shula's 13-1 Colts. He then went out and delivered a 16-7 victory with a tactically brilliant nip-and-tuck, mistake-free performance against one of the most suffocating pass defenses of the Super Bowl Era: the powerful Colts led the NFL in scoring defense (10.3 ppg) and had surrendered just nine TD passes all season, while hauling in 29 INTs. Namath deserves a big sideline kiss for his performance.
