Dolphins Back in the Day
Miami Dolphins is one of the oldest professional football teams in the United States and has a tie up with Atlanta Falcons who began playing around the same time as the Dolphins. The team began playing in 1966 as a part of American Football League and was the first team to be formed in a long time in the region since Miami Seahawks. It joined NFL at the time of the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 after using a boarding school as its training and practice facility.
Super Bowl VI was the first one in which Miami Dolphins made an appearance. The game was lost to Dallas Cowboys. 1972 was a glorious year for the team as it accomplished a ‘perfect regular season'. Starting from all 14 regular season wins, Dolphins won both the NFL playoffs and ended up winning the Super Bowl VII. Few teams have managed to reach this record. The team appeared in and won Super Bowl VIII as well, hence, making two more brilliant records; appearing in three consecutive Super Bowls and winning two of them back to back. The team has also made appearances in two more Super Bowls but has failed to win both. Dolphins' all time winning record including 22 NFL appearances, 13 Division Championships and 5 Conference Championships.
