Today in Sports History: November 14

When the Miami Dolphins defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in 1993, Don Shula broke the record for the most NFL wins for an NFL coach. The 19-14 victory gave Shula his 325th career win, including postseason victories. Described as the “winningest” coach in NFL history by Bleacher Report, Shula coached for a total of 33 seasons and appeared in six Super Bowls. Shula coached the Baltimore Colts for seven straight winning seasons (1962-1969) before becoming head coach for the Miami Dolphins until 1995. Shula is remembered for the Dolphins’ historic 1972 season, the only perfect season in NFL history, where they won Super Bowl VII and went 17-0-0 all season. Previously, Shula played for the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts, and Washington Redskins (1951-52, 1953-56, and 1957).
