Unheralded 1970s NFL Games (Part 4) 1970 Raiders vs. Dolphins

Pigskin Past is part of the Sports History Network - The Headquarters For Your Favorite Sport's Yesteryear.

EPISODE SUMMARY

 This series on unheralded NFL games attempts to recall a game that stands out for a particular team. When talking about the Miami Dolphins, well, there are plenty of games to choose from that are still being talked about today. Both of their Super Bowl victories come to mind, and perhaps their epic Christmas Day victory in the AFC Playoffs over the Kansas City Chiefs in 1971. Also that infamous Hook and Lateral playoff game versus San Diego in 1981. But I decided to focus on a game from 1970 as one of the most unheralded games of the Dolphins’ past. Ask any Dolphins fan when they played their first playoff game, and who they played in that game, and you’re likely to get a blank stare. That is because few people ever recall the game that this Pigskin Past program is about.
