Jan. 14, 1973: Miami Tops Redskins in Super Bowl VII

Jan. 14, 1973: Miami Tops Redskins in Super Bowl VII

On Jan. 14, 1973, the Redskins played in their first Super Bowl – Super Bowl VII – against the undefeated Miami Dolphins.  The sun shined bright in the Los Angeles Coliseum on the fish, who scored two first-half touchdowns and relied on their no-name defense to stifle the Redskins’ offense.  It was a maddening day for the burgundy and gold, who failed to capitalize on scoring chances and once saw a sure TD pass by quarterback Billy Kilmer carom off the goal post.  Miami won, 14-7, to improve to 17-0 and become the only team in NFL history to finish a season, including playoffs, undefeated and untied – a feat that stands.
