In 1972 the Miami Dolphins turned in the only completely undefeated season in the history of the National Football League when they won all 14 regular-season games, two playoff games and then Super Bowl VII to finish a perfect 17-0. But it almost wasn’t to be. The Steelers in their first playoff season ever, nearly handed the Dolphins their first loss which would have sent them home for the rest of the playoffs however Miami prevailed in that AFC championship game 21-17. But that close victory can not compare to what took place in the Super Bowl when the Dolphins faced the NFC champion Washington Redskins.
Leading 14-0, Miami kick Garo Yepremian attempted a field goal that was blocked by Bill Brundige. Yepremian then proceeded to scoop up the loose ball and try to pass it downfield only to see it intercepted by Mike Bass who took it to the house cutting the lead in half although there was under two minutes to play. Miami held the lead and finished the season perfect but not before Garo gave them a scaro.
