Hopefully the champagne the 1972 Dolphins, the last team not to lose a game, takes great delight in sipping after the final undefeated team falls is chilled. But forgive Mercury Morris and company if it’s still warm. After all, the Chiefs – and well, the rest of the league – accomplished something that hadn’t happened in 40 years.
Namely, for the first time since 1970, there will be no 4-0 team in the NFL.
Coming into today, Kansas City, coming off its bye and 3-0 heading into its meeting with Indianapolis, was our only hope. But the Chiefs couldn’t get into the end zone – they kicked three field goals – and their defense wasn’t good enough to stop the Colts for the entire game.
As a result, they fell to 3-1 on the season with the 19-9 loss. And the survivors from the Dolphins team of 38 years ago can continue their obnoxious tradition. Bottoms up.
