50th Anniversary Of Super Bowl III Is Tomorrow!

Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of what's arguably the most famous Super Bowl ever played. That day at the Orange Bowl in Miami, the New York Jets, led by quarterback Joe Namath ,shocked the Baltimore Colts 16-7 in Super Bowl III.


 

For the first time, a team from the upstart American Football League defeated an opponent from the long-established NFL. Coming after one-sided losses by AFL clubs in the first two Super Bowls, the Jets' victory showed that the younger league -- about to merge with the NFL a year later -- was ready to be respected as an equal.

Here's the Super Bowl highlight film, narrated by the legendary voice of the NFL, John Facenda.
