The 19-14 victory gave Shula his 325th career win, including postseason wins. Described as the “winningest” coach in NFL history Bleacher Report, Shula coached for a total of 33 seasons and appeared in six Super Bowls. Shula coached the Baltimore Colts fro seven straight winning seasons (1962-1969) before becoming head coach for the Miami Dolphins until 1995. Shula is remembered for the Dolphins’ historic 1972 season, the only perfect season in NFL history, where they won Super Bowl VII and went 17-0-0 all season.
