8. Joe Namath, N.Y. Jets
What makes a great late-game QB? The ability to raise one's performance as the pressure mounts. Namath could sometimes struggle for three-plus quarters, then elevate his game when the moment demanded it. The Jets' 27-23 defeat of Oakland in the 1968 AFL title game represented some of his finest fourth-quarter work.
