11. 1973 Dolphins (won Super Bowl VIII)
This team is largely overshadowed by their undefeated season the year previous, but many observers claim the ’73 version was better. The undefeated team faced just two teams that finished with winning records, while the ’73 team faced 3 teams that made the playoffs.
Larry Csonka rushed for 1,000 yards while Mercury Morris missed the mark by just 46 yards, continuing Miami’s reliance on running the football. Combine their running dominance with Bob Griese throwing for the second most yards in the conference and you had a really exceptional offense.
