The 1972 Miami Dolphins are the only National Football League team to have a "perfect season", and win the Super Bowl, or NFL Championship. The undefeated campaign was led by coach Don Shula and notable players Bob Griese, Earl Morrall, and Larry Csonka (among many others). This team went 14-0 in the regular season (prior to the extension of the regular season to 16 games in 1978 by the NFL), and won all three post-season games, including Super Bowl VII against the Washington Redskins, to finish 17-0. As of 2010, the 1972 Dolphins remain the only NFL team to complete an entire season undefeated from the opening game through the Super Bowl (or championship game). In addition, the Dolphins continued their winning streak into the 1973 season to 18 straight games, before losing in the second week.
