New England @ Miami

It’s fitting that the largest margin of victory should come in 1972 as part of the team un-defeated season. During the teams week nine contest the Dolphins put 52 points on the board against the visiting Patriots on their way to a perfect season.

Largest Point Margin In Defeat

The Miami Dolphins have lost by as many as 55 points. The game came in 2000, Dan Marino’s last as a Dolphin when the team lost to the Jaguars in the playoffs.
