Jake Scott

To complete its 17-0 season and become the only unbeaten, untied team in NFL history, Miami defeated Washington 14-7.

Miami's "No-Name Defense" was one of the big reasons the team had that perfect record, so it was only fitting that one of its members won the Most Valuable Player award in the Super Bowl.

Safety Jake Scott became only the second defensive player to win the MVP. Scott had two interceptions, including one in the end zone during the fourth quarter. That interception and his 55-yard return iced the game for the Dolphins.
