When the Miami Dolphins defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 19-14, on November 14, 1993, one of pro football’s most cherished NFL records was erased from the record book.
The Dolphins’ win gave Don Shula his 325th victory in 31 years as a pro football coach surpassing George Halas' decades-old mark of 324 coaching wins in 40 years with the Chicago Bears.
In 1970, after seven seasons with the Baltimore Colts, Shula took over as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, a job he kept for 25 years. Shula’s teams reached the playoffs 20 times in 33 seasons and won Super Bowls in 1972 and 1973. The 1972 Dolphins went 17-0 — the only undefeated season in the modern NFL annals.
