Super Bowls of the 70s

This being Super Bowl Sunday and all (congrats, Giants!), I think we need to look at some exciting shots from Super Bowls of the 1970s. Thankfully, CBS News has published a photo gallery that will satisfy our needs. Enjoy a quartet of action shots below.

I was a huge Miami Dolphins fan as a kid (even though I lived in Los Angeles) and for many years in the early and mid-70s they seemed almost unstoppable. Larry Csonka, especially, was a real hero.

Super Bowl IV, Jan.11, 1970. Kansas City (23), Minnesota (7)

Super Bowl VII, Jan.14, 1973. Miami (14), Washington (7)

Super Bowl History.Net Quote:

“Super Bowl VII
On January 14th, 1973 at Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California, Don Shula’s Miami Dolphins put their perfect season on the line against the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl Seven. The First half saw the Dolphins continue their perfect season, scoring on a Bob Griese touchdown pass and a Jim Kliick plunge. Superstar quarterback, Billy Kilmer couldn’t muster an offensive touchdown for the Skins. The second half had only one score, a 49 yard fumble return by Washington’s Mike Bass on Garo Yepremian’s infamous blocked kick. Safety Jake Scott had two interceptions, and was named MVP. Miami completed their perfect season with a 14-7 Super Bowl 7 victory.”
