MVP: Jake Scott, S, Miami
The Dolphins played virtually perfect football in the first half as their defense permitted the Redskins to cross midfield only once and their offense turned good field position into two touchdowns. Washington's only touchdown came late in the game field-goal attempt was misplayed and fumbled by Garo Yepremian. The Redskins' Mike Bass picked the ball out of the air and ran 49 yards for the score.
