14 Jan 1973

1973 – The Miami Dolphins beat the Washington Redskins 14-7 to win Super Bowl VII at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in California. The Dolphins were the first and only team in NFL history to complete a perfect undefeated season. The Dolphins dominated play for most of the game and would have shut out the Redskins had it not been for a famous blocked field goal attempt in the final few minutes of the game which resulted in the only Redskins touchdown. This was the first Super Bowl win for coach Don Shula who coached the Dolphins to another Super Bowl win the following season.
