As I watched the final minutes of the Denver Broncos win over the Miami Dolphins, I found myself thinking back to 1991, and the Washington team that won the Super Bowl that year. They went 14-2, the best record in the NFL. And they waltzed through the playoffs.
In fact, their 13 point win over the Bills in the Super Bowl was the closest playoff game they played that year. And the thing absolutely no one remembers is that they didn’t play the two best teams in the NFC besides them, the 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles.
