The only team to go undefeated in NFL history is the only team that stands in the way of the 1984 San Francisco 49ers as the greatest team in league history.
That’s the opinion of Sporting News which unveiled their list of the top-10 teams in NFL history as part of their series of greatest sports debates. The 1972 Miami Dolphins rank atop the list due to their unmatched 17-0 record, but are followed by a 49ers team that went 18-1 in 1984.
The ’84 team isn’t solidified as the No. 2 team of all-time however.
As of Monday, fans can rank their 10 best teams online and help the 49ers finish atop the list. The bracket-style voting will pit SN’s top-10 against one another in daily voting rounds. Teams with the most votes will move on in the ultimate fan vote. The best team of all-time will be determined by Friday.
