December 25, 1971: Dolphins/Chiefs and The Longest Game In The History Of The NFL
There were 11 future Hall of Famers on the field that day in Kansas City, of those 11 men one man stood above the rest and that was the Chiefs Ed Podalak. He alone had 350 all purposes yards. 85 rushing, 110 receiving, and 155 in return yards but still ended up on the losing end in the instant classic.
If you look at the box score and think of it in the terms of a boxing match you would say Round 1 was all Chiefs and Round 2 was all Dolphins, the other rounds were virtual draws until Yepremian delivered the knockout blow.
