What is the only NFL team to win a Super Bowl after having a perfect season?
In 2007, Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots defeated every team on its schedule and finished the regular season with a perfect 16-0 record. However, the team’s run to perfection ended when it lost to the New York Giants in the 2008 Super Bowl by a score of 17-14. The 1972 Dolphins are the only team to finish a season with a perfect record, going 17-0 (including the postseason) after beating the Redskins 14-7 in the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the highest level of professional American football in the world. The game is the culmination to a season that begins in the late summer of the previous calendar year. Normally, Roman numerals are used to identify each game, rather than the year in which it is held. For example, Super Bowl I was played on January 15, 1967, following the 1966 regular season. The single exception to this rule is Super Bowl 50, which was played on February 7, 2016, following the 2015 regular season. The next game, Super Bowl LI, scheduled for February 5, 2017, will follow the 2016 regular season.
