The first true dynasty of the NFL's Super Bowl era, the Dolphins were the first team to play in three straight Super Bowl Games between Super Bowls VI and VIII, and the second team to post back-to-back when they won Super Bowl VII 14-7 over the Washington Redskins and Super Bowl VIII 24-7 over the Minnesota Vikings. It's been a long dry spell ever since and while the Dolphins have sent many good teams back to the postseason, the Dolphins have returned to the Super Bowl just two more times, losing on both occasions - 27-17 to the Redskins in Super Bowl XVII and 38-16 to the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XIX
