In this first round matchup, it’s the Cinderella 2003 Marlins against one of the favorites – the Perfect Season 1972 Miami Dolphins.
The 72 Fins continue to stand alone in the pantheon of NFL lore. Don Shula’s group completed a feat that probably never be replicated and was stocked with multiple eventual Hall of Famers.
The 2003 Marlins did the improbable. They danced the line between being lucky and being pretty damn good. Jack McKeon lights a cigar every time he thinks about this magical year.
Winner: (1) 1972 Miami Dolphins
