1968 Baltimore Colts (13-1)

We could break down the Colts' Super Bowl III loss to the Jets in myriad ways. But it's more fun to wonder how NFL history would have been written if Baltimore had not been party to the most storied upset of all time. Something like ...
1) The AFL never earns the pre-merger respect of the NFL;
2) Coach Don Shula never leaves Baltimore for the still-in-expansion-mode Dolphins in 1970;
3) Joe Namath never gets the chance to visit Bobby Brady, on his phony death bed, in a campy but memorable episode of TV's The Brady Bunch;
4) And Namath never signs a landmark deal to endorse pantyhose for Beauty Mist in the mid-70s.
