Best Answer

Super Bowl III was the first Super Bowl to actually be called a "Super Bowl." Things were a bit different then than they are now. Back then, the Colts were the Baltimore Colts, a team in the "NFL" (now the NFC) while the Jets were in the AFL (now the AFC) as they are to this day. The year after this game was played, the colts, the browns and the steelers became part of the newly formed AFC as part of the 1970 merger. This made them the only team in NFL history to play a former super bowl opponent as a divisional opponent.
