Coached by Don Shula, the 1972 Miami Dolphins went 14-0 during the regular season and swept their three playoff games to complete the only perfect season in the Super Bowl era. The Dolphins ranked first in the NFL in scoring offense (27.5 points per game) and scoring defense (12.2 per game) as well as total yards and yards allowed. Miami led in rushing yards, averaging over 211 rushing yards per game, with two 1,000-yard rushers: running back Mercury Morris, who had an NFL-best 12 rushing TDs, and fullback Larry Csonka. Six future Hall of Famers played on the Dolphins, including QB Bob Griese and WR Paul Warfield. Linebacker Nick Buoniconti led the Dolphins "No Name Defense" while defensive end Bill Stanfill and safeties Dick Anderson and Jake Scott had Pro Bowl seasons. After their undefeated regular season, the Dolphins beat the Browns, 20-14 in the AFC Divisional Round, the Steelers, 21-17 to capture the AFC Championship, and topped the Redskins, 14-7 in Super Bowl VII.
